Social Assistance

We connect you with community resources that can protect and support you and your family.

Our team of application counselors, resource specialists, case managers, and lawyers work with the community to support families in need of health insurance, information and referrals, public benefits, and legal consultation.

Health insurance can keep hundreds of dollars in your pocket, and can improve your long-term health with regular check-ups with your doctor.

Health Insurance Applications

LCH submits thousands of applications on behalf of community members during open enrollment for health insurance.

Certified Application Counselors help community members of all ages with an initial health insurance screening, the application process, and follow-up.

The safety net of public benefits is a complicated, difficult, and often scary process for the most vulnerable in our community. By providing application support for health insurance enrollment and other public benefits, LCH helps the community be and stay healthier by protecting families through health insurance coverage. Health insurance enrollment is offered daily at LCH, but individual appointments for the full application process are scheduled ahead of time.

An LCH case manager works with a family.

Community members in need of long-term support are referred to a case manager, who develops short-term and long-term goals for themselves and their families.

As the case managers grow to understand the needs of a family, LCH provides multiple services on-site and through external referrals. Case managers meet with families on a frequent basis to help eliminate barriers and strategize next steps for achieving their goals.

“I would not have been able to find the support that I desperately needed to care for my family without LCH.”
