OUR HISTORY

Changing lives since 1976.

Life Styles was founded in Fayetteville in 1976 by Carol Hart, whose work with disabled youth at what-was-then-called the Washington County School for Trainable Children inspired her to challenge the conventional options available to adults with disabilities—namely segregation in group homes and institutions that keep people isolated from community life.

 

Ever since, Life Styles has been devoted to helping adults with disabilities live productive, self-directed lives at home, work, and play in the very midst of Northwest Arkansas—building a more diverse and vibrant community for each and every one of us, enriched by people of all abilities.
