How Are Needs Identified?
Cases are referred to The Fund by caseworkers from more than 35 government and private agencies in Lehigh and Northampton Counties. This referral process ensures that the need is real and immediate, and that traditional avenues to meet this need have been tried without success.

Each case is then promptly reviewed by The Fund's Trustees to determine that the request meets the mission of The Fund to Benefit Children & Youth.
