How We Help

How your generosity is used

With your generous support, we’re able to maintain and improve many Lifetime Assistance programs, including health and wellness, educational advancement, technology, adaptive lift and mobility and transfer equipment, recreation, and Special Olympics among other services.

A few ways your donations make a difference

Education

Funding from the Florence Muller Foundation, M&T Foundation and Rochester Area Community Foundation, is helping individuals with developmental disabilities go to school. Students have the chance to attend Monroe Community College’s Damon Campus to audit classes and enroll in internships with the goal of getting a better job in the community.

Mobility

Many of the individuals we support are in need of technology that will increase mobility and accessibility. For example, funds from several local foundations and community supporters resulted in a successful $385,000 campaign, funding mobility lifts and transfer equipment for hundreds of individuals.

Technology

Working with TouchStream Solutions and with support from a generous grant from the Developmental Disabilities Giving Circle, new doors to independence have opened. Technology, with personal and health care/activity reminders, has maximized independence, while assuring health and safety.

Lifetime Assistance Services

The Foundation works in supports of every department, for improved and expanded services. Some examples include:

  • Funding classes, health and wellness activities, and accessing equipment to benefit the recreational services department.
  • Working with vocational services to fund equipment needed and training required to help individuals acquire jobs.
  • Community services offers grants to families to help them with expenses not covered by traditional methods.
