40 years ago the idea was controversial, today LFHS is a vital community agency

— Alletta Schadler, Founding member

I remember forty years ago, I was asked to become part of a steering committee exploring the organization of a Family Planning Agency. Attitudes about “birth control” were quite different then.  The idea that there was a need for an agency to provide easily accessible affordable family planning services and information for women regardless of age, income or marital status was somewhat controversial. I was a little nervous about the task.

I have been so impressed with the steady growth  of the original mission but also the addition  of other services that complement the health and well being of individuals and families. Through the years the community has been blessed with staff who have had leadership, vision, and expertise to grow the programs and the funding support needed to carry  on.  Committed volunteers were critical in the beginning and have continued to provide the guidance needed to sustain this vital community agency.

I am proud to have had a small part in this big successful story, knowing that there are more good things ahead for Lebanon County.
