Align Credit Union truly embraces the credit union philosophy of "people helping people," especially through their community involvement. They are our sponsor for the Year of Service 2021, joining a decades-long tradition of our powerful radio stations offering free advertising to select local nonprofits. Align Credit Union is invested in helping its members reach their financial goals and supporting the communities they serve.

This month they're highlighting Lakes Region Community Services in Laconia. Lake Region Community Services serves the residences of Belknap and southern Grafton counties by supporting individuals and families living with developmental disabilities or acquired brain disorders. They provide community-wide family supports to enhance the quality of life from birth until the end of someone's lifespan.

A resource for 500 families and 1,000 children, Lakes Region Community Services is dedicated to strengthening all families and the communities they live in. Their services may be eligible to any resident of New Hampshire who has a developmental disability and/or acquired brain disorder.

Whether someone needs help with autism, family-centered support, in-home support, or employment services, Lakes Region Community Services is always willing to help those who need it.

While their 2020 fundraising events were cancelled, Lakes Region Community Services hopes to host their events later this year. Until then, you can still read about ways to support the nonprofit on their website.
