We also congratulate Lisa Riffanacht on her retirement after a long and impactful career helping Lancaster County residents in need access healthcare and disability services. Lisa has managed the Children’s Mental Health Copay Assistance program at LOHF since it began in 2017. Prior to this, she was Executive Director of Project Access Lancaster County (PALCO), which coordinated donated medical and dental care for those in need. She also served our community in a prior role at United Disability Services. A devoted mother and grandmother, she looks forward to spending even more time with her family.
Terry Sweigart (LOHF Board Emeritus) will continue to volunteer, assisting Shanece with the Children’s Mental Health Copay Assistance program.
Please join us in celebrating their contributions and success!
