As one of society's key institutions, schools are in a strong position to support the wellbeing and values of young people. LECS School Support Team members can play a significant role in supporting elementary, middle, and high school's students, administration, staff and parents throughout sixteen different school districts in the Greater Sacramento Region, including community colleges.
If your school is experiencing a traumatic event LECS provides 24-7-365 rapid response teams alongside law enforcement agencies with on-scene emotional crisis support. Chaplains are experts in the aftermath of grief and loss. LECS serves 16 local school districts by providing school faculty, children, young adults, and families with immediate practical guidance, and valuable resources of what happens next, after their impact or loss.
Further, LECS Chaplains are Peace Officer Standards and Training (POST) certified post-trauma and crisis responders. Chaplains are trained in the areas of crime scene integrity, psychological first aid, school crisis intervention, mass casualty evacuation scene support, search and rescue field operations, Town Hall meeting strategies, and Family Assistance Centers' management.
Since 1977, LECS has been supported by individual donations, corporate sponsors, churches, clubs, small businesses, contract service grants and various fundraising campaigns. All Chaplaincy services are entirely free.
