People with intellectual disabilities on Staten Island can find a world of opportunities at Lifestyles for the Disabled. The agency provides realistic work settings where participants can explore their creativity in arts and crafts, embroider or print tee shirts and clothing, provide cleaning services, provide food services at the Lifestyles Caffe or catering off-site, beautify the community and grow beautiful greenhouse plants and flowers. They also find needed services, friendship, travel opportunities and fun leisure activities as well as respite services that benefit their whole families.
To introduce this vast array of services to neighbors and friends on Staten Island and beyond in the greater community of people with disabilities and their supporters, we are launching Life & Styles, the newsletter of Lifestyles for the Disabled. Each issue will celebrate the successes of our members in their endeavors and feature activities like our recent trip to Cleveland and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Readers will meet the staff and learn about the work they do to enhance the lives of their participants. Friends of Lifestyles will be featured as well along with updates on matters of interest to the community and opportunities to support the agency at events and through annual giving.
