LSH Election 2015
"I like working with LSH because it's an efficient organization and it helps people in my community to be self-sufficient."
-- Greg Cody, LSH Board Member
Nominations are open for the LSH Board of Directors!
Why serve on the LSH Board of Directors?
It’s hard to live a normal life if you can’t see or hear. Yet too many people in our communities suffer from impaired hearing or vision, without the means to fix the problem. Often the solution – such as cataract surgery or hearing aids – is fairly straightforward, but impossibly expensive. LSH steps into that breach.
LSH provides funding for surgery to restore sight or devices to restore hearing for those who lack insurance coverage or otherwise cannot afford it.
During our 2013-2014 budget year, LSH provided more than $560,000 of service value to your communities in Southern California. To understand the impact of our programs, you can read some of our success stories at: http://www.lshf.org/client-success-stories.html
