About

Since 1954, Lifehouse has opened the doors of opportunity and independence to individuals with developmental disabilities through life-skills training, community integration, advocacy, referrals and community information. We couldn’t be more proud of the progress of the people we support, the satisfaction it has brought to them and their families, and the many beneficial effects of their integration into our community.

With the help of our staff, donors, volunteers and local community, we strive to improve the quality of life for the people we serve and their families. Our individualized programs and services are provided in an atmosphere of respect, inspiration and purpose. We currently serve over 250 individuals living independently with support in the community in Marin, Sonoma and San Francisco Counties.

An Innovative Leader
Formerly known as MARC, Lifehouse is recognized as an innovative and forward thinking leader, continually striving to provide the highest level of services to the people we support and developing new programs to meet the needs of the community. Lifehouse provided the early leadership for special education, implemented the first employment training program, started Marin Special Olympics, launched community recreation programs for adults, a seniors program, and most recently, programs to address social and recreation needs for teens with developmental disabilities and the increased needs of those with autism.
