Mission Statement

LEAF offers a human services safety net for people in need in the Greater Lyons area.

Organization History

LEAF began in 2008 when the pastor of the Lyons Community Church started a Food Pantry and Basic Needs emergency fund because there were people in the Greater Lyons area who didn't have enough to eat, and who sometimes needed help paying for basic needs like heat, electricity, rent and medical bills. LEAF became its own 501c3 nonprofit in 2016. LEAF is the only human service agency working exclusively in the Greater Lyons area. LEAF offer fivr wraparound programs, the Lyons Community Food Pantry, Lyons Meals on Wheels, Basic Needs & Resource Matching, Mental Wellness & Addiction Recovery, and Lyons Volunteers. LEAF serves an average of 150 people weekly.

Testimonials

"I thank LEAF for the much needed assistance that you have extended to me. My life has changed for the better over the long run. I really appreciate how deeply concerned you all are about ensuring that the assistance you offer will make the biggest impact on any given situation. LEAF truly does supply a bit of a security blanket to the residents of Lyons." - a LEAF client
