I have been a board member of LEAHC for over 10 years. I left the boar
when we were out of town for a year, but have started a second term. Along the way I have served as president and currently am vice president. I have watched LEAHC grow from a new group providing emergency housing, two year temporary housing and help with specific housing and food needs while struggling to find the necessary financial support to an organization which is now receiving United Way funding for specific projects, has at least 3 major fund raising events during the year, and is on much sounder financial footing.
LEAHC has also changed and expanded housing help over the years.
It has a great staff who all pitch in and are willing to change assignments as needed. LEAHC is now a leader in cooperative housing ventures in Lenawee County, working well with other non profit organizations.

A great organization that helps families with housing that is transitional or in a crisis and can connect with other organizations throughout the community to bring resources to those in need.

This agency is well known in our small community. We serve and help many people who are in a housing crisis. We have a very extensive social service network of professionals and landlords that step up to make sure all of our residents are safe and warm during these cold Michigan months. Just recently, a seventy one year old gentleman came off of a bus from Georgia, where he was living with his daughter. He had health problems and just wanted to come home to Michigan. It was blizzard-like weather when he arrived to our agency with only his two large duffel bags. Right away, we all pitched in to connect him to resources for shelter as well as supplied him with food , blankets, transportation tickets, and phone services from LEAHC. He is now permanently housed at a senior apartment complex which took case management and coordination.

I am the Administrative Asst. & Client Intake Coordinator at LEAHC. I have been humbled by my experience working here and seeing the need of so many people, from so many walks of life. LEAHC provides an opportunity for these people to stay in their current housing or to relocate for something more affordable. We also provide emergency shelter and tranistional housing for the homeless and the low income families in our community. We have a wonderful, dedicated staff that moves daily towards ending homelessness and improving housing for those in crisis.

I am an outreach case manager at LEAHC, so I personally work with clients. LEAHC is always working to increase funding and services to clients. All case workers really care about the clients that they serve and we do our best to keep up with opportunties and resources for our clients. I work at LEAHC because I believe what I do really makes a difference in the lives of the people I have an opportunity to serve and work with.

LEAHC is an organization that is enriching lives by supplying those who are in need with housing and programs that will maintain their success in the future.

LEAHC is an organization working hard to end homelessness in Lenawee. Besides offering shelter and affordable housing opportunities, LEAHC also assists with rent or mortgage payments. LEAHC is unique in services it provides and collaborates with many to reduce duplication.
