From client to advocate

— Maggie Leon

My name is Lourdes (“Maggie”) Leon and I had my first child 24 years ago.  In 1989 LFHS was called “Lebanon Family Planning” and they helped me in the same way they are helping others today.  I began using LFHS’s prenatal program and was also introduced to WIC.  It was such a big help to me at a time when I financially needed it.  The WIC checks not only helped my family budget, but I learned so much about how to be healthy and feed my children in a healthy way.

 

Fifteen years later I had my son.  Once again, LFHS was there to see me though the pregnancy with their professional and caring staff.  I always felt comfortable and well cared for.  I am very happy to have them in my life.  Now, 24 years later, LFHS is still in my life because my daughter is using the services.  I am happy to know she is being cared for by such wonderful women!

 

I now work at LFHS and have become an active advocate for the services they provide.  I tell everyone I can about the tobacco cessation classes and I am out at the Latino Health Fair every fall and Healthy Kids Day in the spring encouraging others in my community to better themselves with the services offered by LFHS.

Taking the time to take this class, it was our way to say to our child, “hey, we love you and as a family we can do this!”
