About Family Support Services:  The Family Support Services program of LBSA realizes the huge gap in respite services to Northfield family members who have children with developmental challenges.  We want to help our community families by providing solutions that include monthly respite care events, regularly scheduled respite, after school programs, resource referrals, community connections, and recreational assistance.  Obtaining this grant money would benefit our entire community of Northfield.

Laura Baker is in the top third of vote getters.  Most of the current top 10 organizations get 153 votes a day!  NORTHFIELD, the community that CARES, could blow that out of the water!!!

Won’t YOU support our community and Family Support Services!!!
