Reverend Eric Linthicum
"LSS NCA's Vision is 'Proclaiming God's grace, we compassionately work to create a society where the most vulnerable among us find wholeness, justice, and self-sufficiency.' Being a member of the Board of Directors allows me to participate in this vision in a bold and meaningful way. This is similar to work being done in my parish, but on a larger scale."
