Halloween Masquerade Party

LD Halloween Invites

Come one, come all to LIFEDesigns annual Halloween Masquerade Party. The party will be held this year at the Moose Lodge. Come on out for a spooky night filled with delicious treats and fun activities. As usual, part of the fun will be watching three lucky winners get a pie in the face! LIFEDesigns office staff is currently holding a penny pitch to decide exactly who those winners will be. If there is someone you would love to see get pie-ed, bring your pennies to LIFEDesigns office on Winslow to “vote” for the winners. The Penny War continues through October 24 5:00 pm and funds donated benefit United Way Agencies, including LIFEDesigns.

Don’t be afraid to come dressed in your spookiest costume, it’s all part of the fun! Contact Stephanie Shelton sshelton@lifedesignsinc.org or (812) 332-9615 if you would like to volunteer or donate to support this fun activity for all LIFEDesigns customers, staff, donors, and supporters.

Crawford Apartments Award

Crawford Apartments Receives Award from Lt. Governor Sue Ellspermann

On October 1st, Crawford Apartments was awarded the Lt. Governor’s Award for Excellence in Affordable Housing and Community Development. The award is highly distinguished, and LIFEDesigns was truly honored to accept this award with partner Shalom Community Center in recognition of their joint effort in Crawford Apartments.

The award recognizes organizations that have made an exceptional contribution to community development and affordable housing in Indiana. The awards spotlight developments that best provide affordable options in rental units for those Hoosiers who are traditionally underserved. Winning entries demonstrate a commitment to affordable housing as well as innovation and a spirit of cooperation.

Crawford Apartments are permanent affordable housing units for our most vulnerable community members.  Crawford has maintained a 100% stay rate over the past 6 months, which is extremely rare for this type of housing. Crawford supports its occupants by providing employment counseling, training and placement, continuing education, counseling, case management, addiction counseling and support, and nutrition and wellness education.

LIFEDesigns hosted its first ever Talent Show on July 18, 2014.

The talent show was a lot of fun for nearly 80 people who attended as well as the participants in 9 acts. The co-hosts Zakk On-Air from B97’s Afternoon Juice and Jake May from Bloomington’s own South High School were also great entertainment for the evening. If you missed this amazing show, you should certainly take the time to follow the link and watch this video. Some of the acts included “25 Songs in 3 Minutes”, Celine Dion “That’s the Way it Is”, Johnny Cash “Walk the Line”, and much more. 

We would like to give a special “Thank You” to Jake May, who orchestrated this entire event. Others we would like to thank for making this event a success are co-host Zakk from B97’s Afternoon Juice, Roman Chrzanowski from RomaX Motion Pictures Production, Bloomington South High School, and WBWB-FM B97.
