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 $15 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).

Sept 8th : Bridge of Hope
Today, more and more families are facing increasing barriers to sustainable housing and financial stability. Unaffordable housing, wage disparity and lack of an informal support system can leave families (mostly single-mother-led households) without options. What additional supports would be helpful to meet these escalating needs? How do informal supports become vital when the family is ready to move back into housing and beyond? Bridge of Hope believes that when churches respond, homelessness ends, and hope begins. A national program model, each family served is matched with 6-10 well-trained Neighboring Volunteers from a church, Bible study or small group. Neighboring provides families with the tangible and emotional supports we all need when facing a crisis. Neighboring also helps train and guide church volunteers to respond more effectively. On Friday, September 8, Anne Dunnenberger, Bridge of Hope National Director of Outreach, will share more about Bridge of Hope, and how the model can be part of the Lebanon community to further supports for the families you serve.
