090113 Child and Family Services Relocates Laconia Office (250)

LACONIA — Lakes Region Community Services recently welcomed the Laconia Office of Child and Family Services to the newly renovated Federal Building at 719 North Main Street in downtown Laconia.

LRCS and the LRCS Family Resource Center occupy most of the more than 20,000 square foot building, however additional office space became available when the Boys and Girls Club of the Lakes Region moved to its own larger building. "We are very pleased to have CFS join us in this centrally located and accessible building. The move allows us to fully use this wonderful community resource and is cost effective for both organizations," commented Christine Santaniello, LRCS Executive Director.

"As the oldest children's charitable organization in New Hampshire, Child and Family services has always flourished in collaboration with other like-minded organizations," says Maria Gagnon, SVP/COO of Child and Family Services. "Now under one roof with LRCS, Lakes Region children, youth and families will have access to an array of services that can help them through the challenging times and enhance quality of life."

Lakes Region Community Services is a nonprofit, comprehensive family support agency with a primary focus of providing supports to individuals with developmental disabilities and/or acquired brain disorders and their families.

LRCS has offices in Laconia and Plymouth which combine to serve families residing throughout Belknap and Southern Grafton Counties. To learn more about the Lakes Region Community Services contact Joanne Piper Lang at 603-5224-8891 or visit www.lrcs.org.
