About LLA


GuidestarWe are deeply grateful to supporters at every level who make it possible for LLA students to turn their lives around. The following list includes donors to our three-year, $8M fundraising campaign that kicked off on July 1, 2018. The campaign supports 1) construction of the dorm, 2) sustaining the school’s innovative, individualized programming, and 3) operating the school and the dorm for the next three years.
