The Purpose Fund

Established in 2013 by LHC Group, The Purpose Fund is an employee hardship relief fund designed to assist employees in times of crisis.

Examples of qualifying expenses include critical illness or injury, or unexpected financial hardship for which the employee cannot otherwise find relief, including natural disasters, fire, or death of an immediate family member.

One hundred percent of donations are used to help employees facing unexpected financial hardship. All administrative costs associated with The Purpose Fund are paid by LHC Group.

A committee of LHC Group employees — representing various divisions and geographic areas of the company — reviews applications and makes grants as appropriate in accordance with pre-determined criteria. All requests are kept confidential.
