For more than 25 years, the Living Independently Forever (“LIFE”) organization has enabled individuals to achieve independent lifestyle goals through intensive supports in the areas of home living and economics, vocational training, recreational, health and fitness programs, and importantly, active social engagement.

In response to the Covid-19 pandemic, the LIFE team implemented practices to keep our community safe and healthy, quickly adapting to offer new ways to provide continuity of services.

Our entire community has demonstrated remarkable resilience through this crisis, which is a skill essential to a happy, independent life and LIFE’s mission.

“Every day there are activities that Brad look forward to. You’re life savers!” ~ Nancy

Many program participants have worked through this pandemic at supermarkets, assisted living, restaurants, and other businesses to support the greater community.

During Family Conference 2020, we celebrate all of LIFE’s resilient heroes — staff, families and participants — who have worked through their fear by continuing to show up every day!
