The Impact and Innovation of LifeCare Alliance
Thanks to your support and many incredible partners, it is an exciting time of growth and innovation at LifeCare Alliance!

You make it possible for over 30,000 clients annually to receive compassionate, quality care here in central Ohio. As we continue to navigate the ever-changing climate of sustainability in the nonprofit sector - and as traditional funding sources continue to erode - your support is the critical link to ensuring that we continue to take all those in need who qualify, and without a waiting list.

Charles W. Gehring

Program Spotlight: IMPACT Safety
My work environment is not always safe and [now] I feel
better protected knowing I have the skills - even if I don’t have to use it."

In late February, IMPACT Safety held a weekend-long seminar, "Own Your Own Safety," to help women identify and respond to unsafe situations.

Women — ranging from 22 to 60 years old — learned and practiced boundary setting, verbal self-defense, assertiveness, adrenaline management and full force physical self-defense skills. Participants said they left feeling more empowered than ever!

IMPACT Safety is a personal safety and violence prevention program taught to people of all ages and abilities. To learn more, email [email protected] or call 614-437-2884.
