2016 Year in Pictures

 

2017 was an exciting eventful year for LHCC, as we continue to serve families and their children with love and dignity. Please enjoy some of the memorable moments, highlighting our program services, volunteers and kind words from both parents and children:

After school Homework & Reading Program

Volunteers of all ages get to interact weekly with the coolest kids in the community. We start with a devotion, prayers, snack-time and then the homework and reading, before a little soccer and exercise before we travel home.

Summer Enrichment Camp & Vacation Bible School

Clockwise: Many nations are represented at our camps (18 nations in total); let’s get the day started with praise and worship; learning to swim and having fun is always a great time for all; tribes demonstrate what they have learned each week; we eat nutritious meals each day,

Parents enjoyed the daily conversational English classes, while their children enjoyed summer camp, in the same facility. “We loved sending our children to summer camp, thanks for all you do for our apartment community” Maria H

“The best part about summer camp is having fun with my friends, and going to outings. I liked swimming, the soccer clinic and the Mint museum the most” Jason H ~ Grade 3

Saturday Community Sports
