“LPCS saved my life and took me from being homeless and helpless, and turned me into a miracle!” -LPCS Graduate
What comes to mind when you see someone ringing a bell?
At LPCS, it is a way to recognize the amazing and wonderful things that Guests, Graduates, and Community Clients are accomplishing. Former Executive Director Dan Hula wanted to find a way to signify these moments, so he had a bell installed outside of his office. “While it is often easy to get caught up in the hectic and busy nature of our work, the bell has become a symbol of community, celebration, and a reminder to us all why we are here,” shared Hula. Now, the bell is rung every time a member of the LPCS community achieves one of their goals.
