Every Step of the Way

2022 Fundraising Campaign

For 125 years, Laura Baker Services Association (LBSA) has been bringing the power of possibility to people with special needs. Our passionate and purposeful staff members and you, our generous and inspirational donors, supporters, and volunteers, have been with us every step of the way. Thank you! As we navigate to a new normal, the steps are not always clear. You provide hope as we consider the possibilities of the next 125 years! Ensuring that we can continue our mission today and in the future will require significant effort and financial support. In 2022, we need to raise $700,000 for our Annual Fund and an additional $350,000 for our Program Expansion initiatives.

How you can help today:


Your gift to our Annual Fund will help support LBSA today, allowing us to continue providing innovative programming, care and services. Your financial support is used to:

  • Retain and develop high-performing, caring direct support staff who provide the right level of support based on clients’ individual needs.
  • Provide a family-style home environment that balances opportunities to develop friendships and the right level of independence with safety and support.
  • Give a voice to people with disabilities and engage the community to advocate for resources that benefit people with disabilities.
  • Offer unique learning opportunities to local high school and college students through internships and volunteer opportunities that enhance the lives of our clients.

How you can invest in the future:


Your gift to Program Expansion will help support LBSA in the future. We are developing new services to fulfill unmet needs in the community and create long-term sustainability for the organization. Our Program Expansion initiative includes:

  • Family Navigation Services, which assists families and people with disabilities to access services and supports that make their lives more manageable.
  • Housing Support Services to support people with disabilities in finding and retaining community housing. We’ll assist people to work with landlords and get along with neighbors.
  • Behavioral Support Services that will assist people and families to change and manage behaviors that may create barriers to successful community living.

Will you consider supporting our Annual Fund, Program Expansion or both?
