You May Never Know the Impact You Make
LSS Continues to heal communities, strengthen families, and create avenues for belonging.
Because of you, change happens here
While the global pandemic has contributed to widespread anxiety and depression, our partners in mission have rallied! Your investment in the LSS Response Fund has been a circle of light, a blessing to those we serve. With your support, our clients have received the counseling and resources to break through the dark, lonely days to find healing and hope.
For many, however, the struggles continue. Lives are transformed when we join together. The LSS Response Fund allowed us to adapt to Telehealth services during the lockdown, which made all the difference for our client Mary. She was determined to make positive changes this spring. She recognized that her substance use was consuming her. Mary took a voluntary leave of absence from her job in March and was referred to LSS. She actively participated in Intensive Outpatient Program groups as well as community support groups held via Telehealth.
Mary learned new ways of coping from her counselor and the feedback of her peers. She has adopted a dog. Caring for the dog and receiving its unconditional love and loyalty give her peace and meaning as she engages in mindfulness and reflection. Clean and sober since February 15, Mary says she is living the life she feels she deserves.
Let us continue to be a blessing of hope and healing in a year of hardship. Your gift today empowers individuals, strengthens families and heals communities. Already given this year? We are extremely grateful for your dedication to our mission. There is still a great deal of work to do. Please look into your heart and give generously.
