A crisis like COVID-19 can bring out the best in people or the worst. This past week here at Lakeshore we have seen some of the very best of our staff and the community! So many businesses, suppliers and other community organizations have helped LCS in a host of ways from helping us secure much needed supplies to staffing resources. We are grateful to each and every one of you. A special note of thanks to those making masks for our use and to Luminary Distillery. I would also like to shine the light on LCS staff who have been spreading positive thoughts by recognizing their co-workers with words of encouragement on the LCS internal website.

Has someone gone above and beyond at Lakeshore and you would like to recognize them? Be sure to “shout” it out on LEW. All these efforts are keeping spirits high and ensuring that the care we deliver is consistent and the highest quality.

Stay well everyone and remember - stay home except for health care, essential work and to check on family or obtain groceries.

As COVID-19 continues to cause great suffering around the world, across the nation and here in PA, at Lakeshore we are committed to keeping our consumer's activities in the home as normal as possible. We are committed to ensuring that our consumers days are healthy, active and fun. A very special thank you to all of our Lakeshore employees from the front desk to our managers, DSP’s, HR, accounting, maintenance, administrative and IT staff for keeping things going so smoothly during this crisis. I am humbled by the hard-work, creativity and positive outlook from all of our staff here at Lakeshore during this difficult time.

COVID-19 Response
Lakeshore Community Services

Like for many of you, the Coronavirus (COVID-19) is at the forefront of Lakeshore’s mind. We are taking significant steps to ensure the health, safety and welfare of those we serve, our employees, and the community at large. This is always our first priority. As a result, Lakeshore has imposed some restrictions on access to our offices and facilities. This includes suspending in person meetings, trainings and visitations. Operations are currently being altered to ensure that sufficient resources are in place to provide adequate services to our consumers and support to staff and families. Lakeshore appreciates everyone’s understanding, flexibility and support as we work to navigate this national health emergency.
