Community Connections

LifeCare’s Connections team is passionate about helping people in difficult circumstances find hope, healing and community.

“I was given food packages, clothes, things for my children and also glasses for reading. Not to mention the priceless privilege it has been to meet such a pure heart community that holds only intentions of helping you without you feeling disadvantaged”
