LCLD Virtual Workplace Measures

Following the lead of many of our Members, LCLD employees began working from home on Tuesday, March 17, 2020. We have a plan in place for the day-to-day operations of LCLD to continue virtually.

LCLD will continue to update you regularly about the quickly evolving situation—but please know that the health and safety of our staff, Members, and program participants is our top priority.
