Thank you! Women For LCHC Recognition Breakfast a huge success!

We were proud to honor Laura Kurzrok, Executive Director of Eastern Bank Charitable Foundation, and Alice Lee, Executive Director of Lean Enterprise Institute.   They shared  poignant stories about transformative events in their lives that led them to their commitment to social justice and working for change.  Both spoke eloquently of the need to ensure that those most vulnerable among us get the care they deserve. 

Thank you to everyone who supported this event.  


Important info about SNAP Benefits

The Department of Transition Assistance (DTA) will be issuing February SNAP EARLY - between January 17th and 20th. Just like all normal SNAP payments, this SNAP does not expire and will remain on the card until the household uses it.  DTA will NOT be issuing SNAP in February, so families should plan accordingly.
