Happy New Year from LINC! A Message from Donna Cornelius, Executive Director

Happy New Year! It is amazing to think another year has passed! In the last year LINC has served more than 100 individuals and families from across the United States and around the world! Some just for a phone call upon receiving a job offer, but for many, the LINC staff has helped you find resources, introduce many of you to others in the community and to each other, and spend time with you personally. I hope you all know that the staff and I here at LINC do not do this just because it is our job, but we truly understand all that comes with moving. We sincerely want to help you make the Lehigh Valley your home.
