As you are probably already aware, LC/NA has been down a staff person since May 2011. Our work continues to grow and so must our staff and volunteer base in order to meet the many opportunities and needs already presented.

We are ready to bring on a new Grassroots Organizing and Training Coordinator, but must have your help to raise an additional $30,000 to achieve that goal.  Thanks to a generous $10,000 matching gift pledged by the Beckler Family of the Woodlands, Texas, we already have 1/3 of that goal!  But we still need to raise an additional $20,000 from our membership base TODAY so that we can have the $30,000 in-place to allow us to announce the new hire on December 1, 2011.  Please prayerfully consider a donation of any size to help us take this step forward in our ministry!
