Lifetime Assistance wrote -
Lifetime Assistance was formed from a group of parents with the courage to ask, Now what? as their own children with special needs grew too old for the programs that were in place.
They recognized inherent promise and potential in each individual and pledged to create a support system that will always be there to help individuals with disabilities be as independent as possible—and to realize the opportunities of a lifetime. That support takes many forms—as varied and multifaceted as the amazing people who use it to become all that they can be.
But we cannot do it without you. The funds raised for Lifetime's 2015 Annual Appeal will be used to support the individuals who benefit from these services.
