Lebanon County Council of Human Service Agencies

ABOUT US

The Lebanon County Council of Human Service Agencies (LCCHSA) is a professional networking organization that has been in Lebanon County for over 30 years. We consist of a group of professionals who meet monthly to share updates on our programs, events and offer support for the clients we serve. Meaningful work results from these face-to-face monthly meetings where professionals have the opportunity to network and often collaborate on projects that benefit the citizens of Lebanon County. In addition to sharing monthly updates, we host a monthly speaker or training relevant to our community. It is an excellent opportunity to learn what is happening in Lebanon County. Lunch is available for $11 per person. We meet the second Friday of the month at 12:00 p.m. at Hebron Catering and Events (701 E. Walnut Street, Lebanon). RSVP by noon the Wednesday prior to the meeting. Follow us on Facebook
