LSA Family Health Service, founded by the Little Sisters of the Assumption, strengthens and empowers vulnerable families and children by meeting their basic needs for food, healthcare, education and a safe home, in the belief that affirming families in their own dignity improves the entire community. When LSA Family Health Service opened, its primary focus was on providing skilled nursing care to poor families in their own homes. Today, we offer a broad range of integrated health care, social service, education, early childhood development, advocacy and crisis counseling services to thousands of the most vulnerable families in New York City. Though our programs have evolved and expanded over the years, LSA's goal remains unchanged: to address the many dimensions of family health, and help at-risk families to be self-sustaining, contributing members of the community.
