Joellen Rakow

Worked in every LFHS location

— JoEllen Rakow, Former Employee

As an almost 20 year employee of Lebanon Family Health Services, I had the opportunity to work in every location that LFHS occupied over the years.  In my heart, I knew that the patients, clients and community members who frequent LFHS deserved the best of facilities!   Therefore, my fondest memory is the groundbreaking at 615 Cumberland Street.  It was a huge effort on the part of all the supporters of LFHS, but so worthwhile!

 

I first came to LFHS in 1981 as the community health educator.  From the moment I entered the doors, it felt like family.  I knew the education and services provided were important to the community!  At that time, funding for reproductive health care and WIC was adequate and underserved populations did not suffer as they do today in our struggling economy.  I have worked in the human services field for over 35 years and many families today, especially the “working poor”, – more than ever before – do not have the basics, “food, clothing, shelter, and health care.”

 

If it weren’t for the health and nutrition services LFHS provides, many, many would not have access to any at all!!  LFHS has always been available to provide services to those who fall in the gaps, either without insurance or low income individuals who can’t afford to go anywhere else.
