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 here 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.

Year Round!

Pull Tabs at Running Aces Casino, Hotel, and Racetrack

Enjoy a night out at Running Aces and be sure to play pull tabs! As the charitable gaming partner, Lakes Center for Youth and Families receives proceeds from pull tabs which support our agency and help us reach the community through our Counseling, Intervention, and Enrichment programs.
