What We Do

The Resource Center

Designed to serve as a community hub for LSSNCA program participants, the Resource Center is a meeting point for cultural orientation, engaging support groups, and LSSNCA’s goods donations home! LSSNCA program participants can “shop” their needs upon arrival in the DMV, and as they make the community their new home.
