Imagine a life without hope, without the promise of a better tomorrow, without the opportunity to grow and improve and chase dreams. Sadly, this is the case for many individuals with disabilities. Arkansas is one of only a few states that maintain and fund institutions for persons with developmental disabilities.
The average cost of care in a state-run, publicly-owned institution is $86,365 per person. At Life Styles, that same person can receive services that empower the individual to make their own choices to create their life’s road map for a fraction of that cost – only $21,026 per person!
Life Styles hosts fundraising events, encourages and appreciates private donations, and applies for grant funds to supplement the limited government funding available for services. Life Styles is a United Way of Northwest Arkansas supported agency. Additionally, the Life Styles Foundation was established to raise funds needed to ensure the financial stability of the organization and to ensure that Life Styles will be here to serve individuals in our community in the future.
Life Styles accepts new and gently used items for use in our residential, employment training and College For Living programs.
Items that we particularly need are listed here: Current Needs.
Gifts in-kind to Life Styles are tax deductible.
