A Voice For People With Disabilities


Life-Wire was created to inform, educate, and support Individuals with developmental disabilities, and their guardians. Our goal is to bring awareness to the Disability community both locally and nationally through our programming.


Life-Wire is looking to create an environment where people with developmental disabilities can find inspiration to create, work and, thrive both personally and within their own community. Our programming will create a platform where individuals can showcase their abilities and talents, while receiving feedback through a network of media sources affiliated with Life-Wire.


Life-Wire will be staffed by Lifestyles for the Disabled staff and participants known as crew members who will provide services set forth by our goals and mission. Additionally, Life-Wire will make our service available to other agencies that work with similar populations, creating an opportunity to establish a national presence.
