Matching Fund Ends September 15!

This past month we have seen a influx of new clients. In the past two weeks alone, we have had 8 new clients and 47 total client appointments - and this is just at the Brainerd center! We are thankful that those who need our services are finding us, but an increase in client load means an increase in expenses.

At the same time, we are remodeling the front exterior of the building. Last week, workers uncovered a considerable amount of water damage, which will increase the costs significantly. We need your support this summer to offset these unforeseen costs.

We have a special matching donor opportunity available to you now through September 15th. All donations received or postmarked by that date will be matched up to $20,000. You can choose to give to client care costs or building renovation costs - either way, your gift will be DOUBLED during this time allowing you to make twice the impact.

Please consider giving while this matching offer is in effect.

Melissa's Story

The day had finally come when I saw two pink lines. I was a mix of emotions of mostly excitement and a little bit nervous. My husband and I were married in October of 2016. We both knew we wanted more children. I have a step daughter by marriage. We found out we were expecting on my birthday. This was my first pregnancy and as ready as I was for this baby I still wanted to know more.

Sara's Story:

Karen was my worker who helped me out during my pregnancy. I found out about LAPS by my neighbor since she was pregnant at the same time. Karen helped me learn how to create less stress in my life through talking, videos, and prayers. All the classes gave us a chance to better ourselves as parents. They have awesome clothing selections and baby items to get set up. The best was the baby crib and mattress set which was gently used. Everyone at LAPS has been and had been very helpful and nice since we started through the program. I always let people know where to go if they need some additional help and support. LAPS is amazing.
Thank you for all you have done for us this past year.
