Our mission is to provide financial resources to Lancaster County residents in support of their post-secondary educational goals.

By providing interest-free loans we are helping students attain their dream of higher education. Since the loans are repaid the funds are again available to provide funding to more students. This teaches students the value of paying it forward to help another individual.

The LDHL loan was very helpful in pursuing my education. I continue to have student loan debt from federal loans, but the interest-free loan from LDHL reduced the amount of loans I needed to take out that accrue interest very quickly. It has allowed me to be more financially stable and begin repaying my student loans at a faster rate than I would have been able to otherwise. Thank you so much for everything! – Joanna S. (George Fox University)

Never limit your potential. College is a great time to figure out what you like, what you can do, and what you would rather not do, if possible. Look for new opportunities, always network, and pursue something new, different, and creative so you can really discover yourself. Most importantly, though, always give 110% effort in everything. Hard work DOES pay off. –  Nicholas G. (Millersville University)

I just had my one year anniversary with the Ann B. Barshinger Cancer Institute. I am working with the Cancer Genetics team as a Cancer Genetic Counselor. I graduated with my Master’s degree in Human Genetics in May of 2017.  I love where I am right now. I love working with my patients and getting to know their families. Family history plays a significant role in genetics, so I have the unique opportunity of sitting down with patients and their families. My job is emotionally and mentally draining most days, but it is rewarding nonetheless. It is a privilege to be involved in my patients’ care. – Caroline M. (Sarah Lawrence College)
