Maggie

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.
