LSA Family Health Service (LSA) is a neighborhood-based nonprofit in East Harlem that delivers a holistic model of human services. LSA helps families meet their most fundamental needs: food, clothing, healthcare, and a safe home. Through home visits, on-site services, support groups, classes and more, we help the most vulnerable achieve the wellness and strength they need to move forward.

LSA seeks a dynamic self-starter to assist with our marketing, communications, and development efforts. This person will support the efforts of the Development Team and work closely with the Development Associate, Special Events Manager, and Communications Manager. This internship is an excellent opportunity for someone looking to learn about the multiple facets of nonprofit fundraising, from marketing and special events, to annual fund and corporate sponsorships. We hope to work with students that are in undergraduate programs that require an internship and for this internship, we will provide a modest stipend.
