From the President On behalf of the Board of Directors, administration, staff, participants and families that are served through all of Lawrence Family Development, Inc. d/b/a Lawrence Prospera’s programs, we present this Annual Report which covers July 1, 2021 to June 30, 2022. This FY’22 Annual Report reflects our unwavering commitment to our mission: Strengthening the individuals and families of Lawrence through the development of thriving neighborhoods. Lawrence Prospera is an organization created on meeting the needs of the heavily Hispanic community in Lawrence. That means understanding and evolving as the needs of the community change. To that end, FY’22 was a year of evaluation and rebuilding for Lawrence Prospera. With the COVID-related restrictions mostly behind us, we began to put the pieces back together. This included looking at all of our programming, facilities, and resources and asking how we can use them better to serve the people of Lawrence. As the year progressed, we launched several new initiatives and introduced enhancements to others. Lawrence Prospera is proud of what we were able to accomplish:  Providing daily meals, both breakfast and lunch, for the Lawrence Family Development Charter School, Community Day Charter School, and the SISU Program out of the SISU Kitchen  Launching the GRIT basketball-focused prevention program for at-risk young people ages 12– 18 in partnership with Suenos Basketball  Introducing more culturally-focused programming into the Quintana Center, including Latin Dance classes  Completing the renovation of the Campus at 10 Railroad Street We continue to adapt to the “new normal” and change can be tough, but the staff of Lawrence Prospera is excited about how are adapting and stepping up to meet new challenges. As we bring this past fiscal year to a close, we hope that this 2021-2022 Annual Report reflects our commitment to continuing to meet the needs of Lawrence through the mission of Lawrence Prospera and prompts readers and the Board of Directors to share our satisfaction for the future of Lawrence Prospera and its impact on the community. In addition, Lawrence Prospera continues to strive towards professionalism and excellence in all aspects of the organization by being a community-focused, non-profit service agency. Sincerely, John Housianitis, President Lawrence Prospera Ralph Carrero, Executive Director Lawrence Prospera LAWRENCE PROSPERA FY’2021-2022 ANNUAL REPORT PAGE 1
