Lifehouse is committed to helping the people we support access social and recreational activities in the community.
In 1993, Lifehouse initiated the development of the Marin Coalition with other agencies who serve people with developmental disabilities. The Marin Coalition developed a basketball team, a teen recreation program, and has worked closely with the Parks and Recreation Department to promote community activities, such as monthly dances. Lifehouse also worked with a local Lions Club to start the second Lions Club in the country geared toward those with developmental disabilities.
The people we support are involved in many community activities, including volunteering at local organizations, participating in Special Olympics, horseback riding, swimming and exercise programs, dinners out, bowling and house parties.
Through Lifehouse’s travel programs, the people we support have the opportunity to visit a variety of exciting destinations, such as Mexico, Disneyland, Lake Tahoe, Yosemite, Reno, Las Vegas and New York. Lifehouse also hosts several community events throughout the year, including a summer picnic, awards banquet, holiday party and yachting party.
