Bravo/Brava Team LSA! When you support our amazing team of runners, you provide life-saving and life-transforming services to children and families in East Harlem through programs at Little Sisters of the Assumption Family Health Service (LSA).
LSA’s services help families in crisis and poverty meet their basic needs of food, healthcare, education and safe homes. As families find stability, LSA programs help nurture long-term wellness for the entire family.
Core programs include: a food pantry, home nursing, early childhood and youth enrichment, asthma prevention/environmental health, preventive services to keep children out of foster care, and a thrift store which also provides emergency clothing and goods. In addition, LSA offers art therapy, mental health counseling, on-site immigration and housing legal help, benefits and health care enrollment, and other services that support family well-being.
Each year, LSA Family Health Service programs help more than 2100 families, reaching more than 7,000 individuals.
