Lifting Families Together

Our Story.

I have served as a volunteer and active board member of several non-profit organizations for over 25 years; I am committed to providing service to others. I received my inspiration to start Lifting Families Together from Ethan, a then one year old who had a heart transplant in December of 2012. His family attends the same church with me. Ethan is enrolled in school this year. I believe serving others is my calling and Lifting Families Together will be a great community vehicle to help maintain wholesome family relationships in a supportive environment.
