LIFEDesigns 40th Anniversary

LD Stacked_500x500

2021 marks a milestone for LIFEDesigns, as we are celebrating 40 years of providing support services to individuals with disabilities. Our mission and vision has always been to partner with and promote independence for individuals with disabilities. In honor of LIFEDesigns 40th Anniversary, our committee has set a goal to get 40 new pledges of at least $40.00 per month for one year. Accomplishing this goal will help build a foundation of giving for the next 40 years of providing supports to people with disabilities. 

Our History 

LIFEDesigns, which was called Better Living for Special People at the time, was started by a group of parents who wanted more opportunities for their children in 1981. With hard work, determination, and support from the community, they were able to achieve that goal and provide a better life, not only for their children, but for some many individuals with disabilities. 40 years, and a few name changes later, LIFEDesigns is able to provide support services to almost 250 individuals with disabilities in Monroe and other surrounding counties.
