Cracked iPhone 5s, no home button, black screen HELP

I was walking to my car yesterday during my break at work when some kid came running around the corner knocked my phone out of my hand, prior to this I cracked my phone but it still worked, now when this kid ran into me the home button fell out and sometimes the screen comes on and I can see everything just the touchscreen is broke. A majority of the time the screen stays black and I have no access to any of the phone. Do I just need a new LCD screen or is it the phone itself?

It's premature to say at this time, but you'll know for certain after you've replaced your screen.

As long as you didnt get it wet you should be ok. The iPhones are pretty tough.
The digitizer(touchscreen) glass, and LCD are all glued together. So once you replace the screen all that stuff will get fixed. Most shops should also include the home button if its missing since its a relatively low cost part. We do on our repairs.
Find a good repair shop or as someone will mention head to an apple store.
