LUK, Inc. Blog
Our commonwealth and LUK’s continued work in offering mutual support
I was standing in the check-out line at Market Basket this week and looked around at the other people waiting in the cashier lines. I realized that I knew nothing of the problems they face in their daily lives. In our frequent interactions with other people, we rarely have the opportunity to ask, explore, or understand the struggles that people encounter. Life's journey can be filled with deep troubles and inequities that are painful to bear. Some children are exposed to violence, sexual assaults, or chronic neglect. Some people struggle with depression, anxiety, fatigue, mania, addiction to alcohol, pain killers, or illegal substances. Some are victimized by domestic violence. Others face hunger, want or deep poverty. Others bear social isolation, stigma, or discrimination.

I write to thank you. LUK, Inc. is able to achieve its mission due to the dedication and contributions of our staff, management, Board, funders, and community allies. Our ability to challenge and support people to achieve the full potential, to ensure the safety and health development of children and adults, and to build strong families is possible because of you.
