Life care center relocating Duluth office

The Lake Superior Life Care Center board and staff have been doing much recalculating as to where the Duluth office should relocate. Officials say they have searched from East Duluth to West Duluth for office space that would be in the best location for clients and be affordable. The Duluth office has been temporarily closed. The office in Superior has been taking calls from Duluth and servicing clients who are willing to go to Superior. Officials say that because of misinformation and misunderstandings in the community, the center has lost funding, which in turn has made it more difficult to reopen the Duluth office. They plan to reopen the Duluth office soon but are asking for past faithful supporters’ help. The center is looking for office space, around 1,000 sq. ft., at a reasonable rental rate. Funding for the Duluth office is needed. The center is also in need of board members and staff. Most of all, officials say they need prayers. Visit for more on the organization.
