Working for LAHH gives me a gift to see first hand how work with all of its tasks, demands, joys, accomplishments, time, and energy builds a person, first and foremost how this work builds me. Work is a path of love therefore what I do each day for LAHH, be it pay an invoice, make a phone call, provide on the job support, or something else gives me the chance to build my life and the life of another person. We recruit and hire people who otherwise would be without a job, without a place to make their contribution.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

that the employees have increased hours worked per day from 2 hours per day to 5 hours per day. The employees have become free in front of their jobs and each other. A promotion has been given based on excellent technical ability and increased capacity to give a critical judgement.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Increase awareness with local businesses, donors, foundations, and corporations.
