Reviews for Lifehouse Inc

Rating: 5 stars  

Lifehouse provided the best living experience and care my sister had in her entire life. She was developmentally disabled. Lifehouse staff helped facilitate moving her into a home - a real home - where she could live (called a Supportive Living Program). I am grateful that the last years of her life were in the best, most caring environment. Thank you Lifehouse!

Our 32 year old son is “differently – abled.” He is a gifted artist and musician and the most loving and caring person that you will meet. But he needs support with managing day-to-day and with fitting into the larger world. Because of his special needs, he has not always felt that he was a productive, contributing member of society. Because of those needs, as parents, we have worried about him as he has learned to navigate in his community. We have worried that he will be happy. Most importantly, we were worried about who would take care of him when we are gone.

When we were introduced to Lifehouse, everything changed. We can rest easy every night because we know that our son is well cared for. Lifehouse supports its clients to continue to grow and learn throughout life, just like everybody else. Our son has a new extended family, people who aren’t just staff but who genuinely care about him. Lifehouse supports families, too, as we solve problems together, help our son with his goal setting and help him build his confidence. Lifehouse has set a high standard of staff training and development in the industry - their staff have a passion for working with people with special needs, rather than seeing it as just a job. Lifehouse is on the forefront of supporting people with special needs in living their lives as the adults and young adults that they are. As a board member, I have visited Lifehouse clients in their apartments and supported living environments and have seen them take pride in their work and enjoy dinners and dancing just like anybody else. My son has a home, a family for the rest of his life and I never thought that would be possible, until he became a member of the Lifehouse family. Lifehouse is an inspiration for the community, in its innovation, advocacy and dedication to the highest quality programming. As Lifehouse assists our son and others like him to function in the larger society, it enhances everyone’s lives.

Lifehouse is and private non-profit who say there mission is to help the Disable Adults to thrive in live. Mission that has not being true for the clients at lifehouse. Lifehouse gets a monthly payment for each individual under there care from Medical, Social Security and Golden Gate Regional Center money that is intended to provide the clients with all the necesary ting to thrive in life. Lifehouse doesn't provide the clients with any services not even for there daily needs. Lifehouse in order to sabe money and pay other things they have made the clients there las priority. Lifehouse has also abuse the Work investment Act grants for there owned gain, they don't provide any training in wished this grants are ment for by the federal Government, this agency is all for profit, discrimination, abuse, with a complete intention to make someone rich with the federal fundings... a complete scam.
