Review for Life-Connections Community Development Corporation, Lawrenceville, GA, USA
Life-Connections CDC is a therapeutic mentoring and spiritual enrichment organization for Prison-Reentry program and Prevention awareness campaign on HIV/AIDS. In 2007 LCCDC was in Nigeria, Africa and worked in 3 States reaching over 3,000 high school children with prevention education on HIV/AIDS. In July 2010 LCCDC was invited by the Mayor of Statesville, NC to assist in reducing high number of youth involvement in Gang and group-related activities and the program was highly successful.
