Mission

Life Services is a not-for-profit organization founded in 1988 whose sole purpose is to assure the well being of disabled individuals, particularly those whose families wish to plan for the time when they will no longer be able to provide care.

Program Description

We assist families with a disabled member plan for the time when the primary care givers (usually the mother and father) will no longer be here.

Program Objectives:

  • To maintain the highest quality of life for each disabled member through the full utilization of private and government programs and parent-funded supplemental services.
  • To ensure that each disabled member pursues activities and associations that prevent isolation and loneliness.
  • To preserve the full integrity of funds left by the family, so that they may be used to enrich the life of the person with a disability, without jeopardizing public entitlements.
  • To provide families with peace of mind related to the future care of their disabled loved ones.
