Giving young people the opportunities to have healthy childhoods, feel safe and cared for and mature into productive, confident adults is central to LCIF's work. Young people deserve to to learn, have shelter and gain skills to help them lead the lives of their dreams. Through the Foundation’s youth programs, we hope to do all of this and more.
