 "I am very satisfied... I see other refugees who come from Thailand and Burma. They can’t speak English, and I worry. They need an agency to help them learn to live here. Lao Family can help.” ~ Kyaw Naing


Lao Family Community Development, Inc. (LFCD) assists diverse refugee, immigrant, limited English, and low-income U.S. born community members in achieving long-term financial and social self-sufficiency.
