45th Anniversary

For more than four decades, Lakes Center has been at the nexus of communities, schools, and the justice system, providing emotional, social, and mental health support. Success has been achieved one person at a time. 

Now, as Lakes Center reaches their 45th Anniversary of serving our community, they need you more than ever. COVID-19 was devastating to everyone, and Lakes Center was no exception. They are still trying to get their feet under them by any means possible, other than sacrificing the much needed quality programming. In addition to COVID-19, Lakes Center has had numerous other mountains to climb- one peak after another.

Help us reach our goal of $200,000. Donate or even start your own fundraiser from this page below to share with your family and friends as a cause that is important to you. Help us not only see through our 45th year, but beyond.

Empire Insurance Group, Inc hosts a free community shredding event in support of LC4YF in the spring.

Join us for pull tabs and *Bingo (October-May) at Running Aces.
*Bingo is postponed due to COVID-19
