A Message From LEAF’s Executive Director

Difficult times continue to plague too many of our friends and neighbors. Just as it seemed recovery from the pandemic was on the horizon, rising housing, food, and transportation costs hit our community. LEAF’s comprehensive human services programs offer wrap-around support to people in their time of need. LEAF offers an amazing weekly Food Pantry, a compassionate Meals on Wheels service, free and accessible Mental Wellness & Addiction Recovery care right here in our community, Basic Needs support, and the services of Lyons Volunteers. Whether it’s a pandemic or a family experiencing a tough month, LEAF is here. 

As the only human services agency working exclusively in the Greater Lyons area, LEAF knows Lyons. We know the people and the “Lyons Got Grit” culture. If you are in a position to make a financial gift, it is needed and greatly appreciated. You have our promise that your gift will be used to help your friends and neighbors right here in Lyons.

On behalf of our Board of Directors, over 100 volunteers, and hundreds of people with whom LEAF works, I offer our most humble and grateful thank you.

Lory Barton
LEAF Executive Director
