Lakes Region Community Services Changes Lives.


Miles for Smiles Fundraiser

LRCS has been serving people in  the greater Lakes Region by providing vital social services since 1975.  In its primary mission of supporting individuals and families with developmental disabilities or acquired brain disorders,  residing in 24 cities and towns in the Lakes Region, the agency serves over 1,200 people each year.

With the help of LRCS StaffWorks more than 400 individuals receiving services each year are employed competitively or engaged in their community by volunteering  their time and giving back over 10,000 hours to benefit other nonprofits in the community.


LRCS is also home to the Family Resource Center of Central NH impacting an additional 500 families and 1,000 children yearly through supports and services provided to the community-at-large. The FRC offers parent education classes and workshops, early childhood supports and services, home visiting, Autism Center programs and supports, and the Giggles and Grins community playgroup.

LRCS strives everyday to provide the key supports individuals and families  need to live full lives in their community and to improve the quality of life for those we serve. Gaining full inclusion for all the people we help is high on the list of priorities at LRCS!

Why Give?

“LRSC recognizes that every life is valuable and everyone has a place within our society. The staff at LRCS make it possible for our son to feel good about himself, and in the process, contribute to the richness of life in his community.”  R. Stuart and Ruth Wallace, Plymouth

LRCS’ services are primarily funded through Medicaid.  Medicaid funding is restricted in its use, and the resources available are simply not enough to provide the enhanced services and supports on which the Agency and our community  takes pride.

Our organization counts on the help of generous caring people, families and businesses throughout the area to help to fill the gaps, so we can respond to emergent situations and ensure that no one is denied the opportunity to lead a fulfilling life.

We need your help to serve the children, families and individuals that count on our help!  The people we serve are your neighbors, friends and family members who are living with lifelong developmental disabilities; life changing brain disorders; children and adults with autism spectrum disorder;  the infirmities of aging and chronic illnesses and families struggling to raise their children while challenged by toxic stressors such as poverty, domestic violence, substance misuse and homelessness.
