The importance of giving back was instilled in Lauren at a young age. By twelve years old she was working alongside her family at soup kitchens, hospitals, and shelters. She has worked with organizations such as the Red Cross, CityStep, and the Phyllis Newman Women's Health Initiative and continues to explore how she can fruitfully serve her communities, wherever she is. Her two main organizations are Broadway Serves and SBI College and Career Preparatory Institute.
Broadway Serves is a service organization comprised of members of the Broadway community who are looking to "be the change we want to see in the world." Our mission is to provide a forum for open discourse on issues that affect us all, and to provide opportunities for community service to Broadway and theater professionals. Lauren has been part of the organization since 2012 and is an active Representative.
