spirit-of-service
The Spirit of Service is the pillar of LCCF that includes all other initiatives that address some aspect of the health and quality of life of the children of the state. Through economic support and strategic accompaniment, we have managed a good dynamic flow between programs that have different approaches, different problems and yet share a common vision and a commitment to the children of the state that motivates us to continue to strengthen ties with these community programs, in matters from physical and intellectual disability to mental health and prevention.
