LRCS Participates in NH Gives

Lakes Region Community Services (LRCS) will be participating in NH Gives, a 24-hour online fundraising event taking place on June 11-12. This event presents a wonderful opportunity for our community to come together and support nonprofit organizations, enabling LRCS to amplify its reach and impact.

This year, LRCS will raise money to support transportation costs for our Teen Group, which is dedicated to providing a safe and supportive environment for neurodiverse teens in our community. This group offers a space where they can engage in enriching activities, form meaningful relationships, and grow in confidence and independence.

However, transportation challenges are a significant obstacle. Many of our teens struggle to get to and from LRCS after school, limiting their ability to participate in this vital social program. Parents often juggle work, family responsibilities, and transportation logistics, making consistent attendance difficult.

Your support during NH Gives can make a significant difference. By contributing to the transportation fund, you can help ensure that every teen has the chance to join the group, regardless of transportation challenges.

The Teen Group at LRCS offers numerous benefits, including enhanced socialization, skill development, emotional support, and community inclusion. Through structured and unstructured activities, teens have the opportunity to build friendships, improve communication, and develop essential life skills. The group also serves as a safe space for self-expression and emotional support, fostering a sense of belonging and independence.

Engaging in a variety of enriching activities, including arts and crafts, sports, community outings, and life skills workshops, the Teen Group empowers teens to explore their creativity, promote physical health, and acquire essential life skills for their future.
