Just Announced - Keynote Speaker for the Annual Conference

Dan Cardinali is the president of Communities In Schools, Inc., the nation's largest dropout prevention organization. He will speak on Tuesday, April 21, during our opening keynote session, on the topic of navigating change and his personal experience with scaling a network to achieve greater impact in the communities they serve. Hear how Communities in Schools aligned network members around a common purpose to achieve transformational change, how they leveraged their core strengths, ways they engaged foundations and neighbors, and lessons learned that we can apply to our individual organizations and the LSA network as a whole.

Senate Clears Way for ABLE Act to Become Law

Lutheran Services in America (LSA) and the Lutheran Services in America Disability Network (LSA-DN) applaud the Senate passage of The Achieving a Better Life Experience (ABLE) Act. The overwhelming passage of the ABLE Act through both the House of Representatives and the Senate clears the way for the ABLE Act to become law with President Obama's signature.

ABLE accounts will enable individuals with disabilities to live more fully integrated lives in the community and empower them to take charge of their futures without fear of jeopardizing essential long-term services and supports provided through Medicaid and other programs.
