Sarah Regan Division of the Ladies of the Ancient Order of Hibernians (LAOH) donate $5,500 to LCCC's Foster Family Fund.

LAOH raised the funds at their spring golf outing. The fund is used to support foster children, foster families and birth families with extraordinary expenses such as a bed for the child, car seats, initial clothing and personal care items at placement, transportation for medical appointments and parent visitation appointments.

In addition, LCCC does not want minor extraordinary costs to hinder the return of the child to their birth parents when the parents have worked hard and met all of the requirements for reunification.

Thank you to all the members of LAOH and all golfers who came out and enjoyed an exciting day on the golf course and for making this possible!

Mark your calendars for May 18, 2019 for next year's annual LAOH golf outing.
