The Lyons Family Fund’s current focus is programs/projects that align with one of the following:

  1. Programs/projects that help students and adults (especially from minority backgrounds, first-generation, traditionally underrepresented populations, economically disadvantaged, and single mothers) develop career advancement skills and employment opportunities in order to become self-sufficient, create economic opportunity, and succeed in life.
  2. Programs/projects that help veterans and their families access services they need in order to thrive.
