Save a Life, Lackawanna County
We donate monetary funds to families that lose loved ones to suicide.
We come together as a community
It is without question that financial challenges may arise after suicide. Whether due to the rising costs of funeral expenses, the potential for bills left behind and or the denial of a life insurance policy due to a suicide clause may contribute to this unwanted burden.
Save a life of Lackawanna County is a not for profit organization dedicated to helping families affected by suicide. 100% of all donations are distributed to families that lose a loved one to suicide. Our Board is dedicated to serving our local community. Founded in 2008; Save a Life has raised and allocated over $20,000.00 to these causes. At present Save a Life is incorporated as a non-profit 501 C3 organization.
