LCCC

To support families arriving from Puerto Rico and coordinate services they may need to access, Lehigh Carbon Community College will host a Support for Families from Puerto Rico event 5-7 p.m. Dec. 14 at the college’s Donley Center, 718 West Hamilton St., Allentown.

Information will be available not only for families, but also community members who need to make referrals to agencies in support of the Puerto Rican families who are relocating, including educators, health care workers, nonprofit agencies, etc.

LCCC faculty and staff will be available to address how to transfer to and enroll in the college. Representatives from the English as a Second Language and GED high school equivalency programs, as well as short-term job training, will also be on hand to answer questions about participating in those programs.
