Life Learning Center was awarded a generous grant of $24,510 grant by the Elsa Heisel Sule Foundation.

With this grant, Life Learning Center is able to mitigate a major barrier for its candidates; transportation. Life Learning Center’s new 15-passenger van will allow the Center to reach isolated individuals that would otherwise be unable to make it to and from its facility, located in Covington.

This opportunity allows Life Learning Center to further support their mission of serving the community’s most at-risk citizens. 

Life Learning Center, a nonprofit located in Covington, provides holistic services for its candidates in order to have them overcome barriers in all five domains of life: emotional, financial, physical, spiritual and relational.

Transportation can be a huge barrier for candidates to overcome, and with this grant they are now able to reach those individuals that may not have access to other modes of transportation that would allow them to come to the Center. Mitigating the barrier of transportation allows their Candidates to focus on fully immersing themselves in the curriculum in order to obtain and sustain employment after completing the program. 

Life Learning Center delivers a holistic, integrated continuum of learning and care to help at-risk citizens to reach their highest potential.

The goal of Life Learning Center is to provide candidates with the necessary tools and support that will allow them to not only find a job but sustain a living wage career. Established in 2006, LLC has successfully enrolled 1,950 Candidates in our Center. For more information, click here.
