Member Update with Life Learning Center 

Life Learning Center is a place to provide hope for ‘at-risk’ individuals in our Greater Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky regional community who are ready to commit to long term life change.  Effective March 19, 2020, candidate enrollment is online and all curriculum is being taught virtually using ZOOM.  Support groups are also utilizing the ZOOM platform.  Our volunteers are using ZOOM, facetime, and other modes of communication to work with the candidates.  It has minimized staff in the building using telework and rotating directors daily and is following all CDC guidelines.  Additional updates include the following:
