The LCC “Helping Hands Fund” is Here!

Big Announcement!!! A very important mailing went out on December 1, 2014 to eligible Las Campanas Compadres students and their families/caregivers announcing the newest program meant to improve and benefit the lives of LCC students: The Helping Hands Fund.

To further explain this exciting new dimension of Las Campanas Compadres programs is an excerpt from the mailing’s cover letter written by Suzanna Becerra, Chair, of the Helping Hands Committee:

“The Helping Hands Fund is a Las Campanas Compadres, Inc. sponsored program.



Our mission is:  helping hands

To improve the quality of life for Las Campanas Compadres students by supporting their goals through assistance with the funding of educational and vocational training, the purchase of medical and assistive devices or support services and related technologies.    

Eligible applicants will need to meet the following baseline criteria:

  • The applicant must have been actively enrolled and participating in a Las Campanas Compadres program (swimming or therapeutic riding) for a minimum of six months prior to the date of application
  • The applicant will provide a certification of disability with the application

All applications will be evaluated by the Helping Hands Committee.   If additional information is required, the student or the student’s family or guardian will be contacted by a Helping Hands committee member.   If applicants have any questions or problems with the application form or the application process, they should contact Suzanna Becerra at 505 820 2707 or by email

Completed applications along with all supportive documentation must be received no later than March 1, 2015. Applications received after this date will not be considered. Awards will be made no later than May 1, 2015. Please note, award monies will only be paid to service providers, educators or merchants. Funds will not be paid to individuals.

Our students are the heart of our program and we are continually searching for new ways to enhance and enrich their lives. We hope Helping Hands will do exactly that.”
