About Us

Since LHACC opened in July, 2010, it has served the community, through its culturally competent bilingual staff, offering information, referral and follow-up services and case management services. In 2013, the United Way of the Capital Region, who had been instrumental in supporting LHACC’s development, designated LHACC as a United Way Partner Organization.

The organization also supports individuals with immigration matters, employment assistance, education needs such as GED and ESL, both physical and mental health services, intervention services including family relocation, domestic violence, scams, fraud, identify theft, and other legal matters; housing and tenant issues.
