Enthusiastically supporting adults with disabilities since 1976.
A Life Styles Client for 30 Years
At eleven, Susie won a gold medal in Track and Field at the very first Arkansas Special Olympics championship in 1968. And this remarkable woman with the fiery red hair has continued her winning streak ever since.
Susie was selected Employee of the Year at the Walmart Optical Lab, where she maintained perfect attendance for 19 years before just recently retiring. She lives in her own home (which at one time was painted entirely pink inside—guess Susie's favorite color) with the help of Life Styles’ direct support professional staff, and her neighbors have crowned her "Linda Jo Cat Lady" for her scrupulous care of neighborhood cat, Katie.
Susie has very strong political views and a dogged determination to improve her reading skills (with excellent support from the Ozark Literacy Council)—and you can bet she's looking forward to the day she nabs her next, but certainly not last, Special Olympics medal.

Making a difference in the lives of others,
and in the soul of our community.
This place is a great blessing to me. I love being at Life Styles. I also love making new friends and doing art and learning things.

The staff at Life Styles treat my brother with respect, while teaching him skills and giving him the support that helps him lead an independent and full life.

One of the most amazing organizations I have ever seen. It has been nothing but the most beautiful experience for my daughter.
