WE’RE BRINGING WELLNESS HOME.
Strengthening East Harlem families since 1958.
LSA Family Health Service, founded by The Little Sisters of the Assumption in 1958, is a neighborhood-based nonprofit which delivers a holistic model of human services. We help families meet their most fundamental needs: food, clothing, healthcare, and a safe home. Through home visits, on-site services, support groups, classes and more, we help the most vulnerable achieve the wellness and strength they need to move forward.

An investigative report on the high rates of asthma in East Harlem features families in our Environmental Health Services program.
The struggle of living in poverty or crisis depletes energy, compromises health and impedes child development.
Over time, LSA’s holistic model of delivering an array of human services to families with young children truly improves health—and lives. Each family member experiences different needs. Our programs meet the most critical of those needs while nurturing healthy relationships and building self-sufficiency.
