This nonprofit is history. Apparently there was some sort of hostile takeover and the founding board members which supported the original mission left. Then the new board fumbled the ball, and the rest, as they say, is history.

I was recently telling an associate about this organization, which had been promoting a community innovation center effort about a year ago. When I searched on the company name, to get the info to send along, this Great Nonprofits listing came up, but the company itself appears to be gone. In looking over the comments from the last year or so, I'm surprised the organizational listing still shows as 4+ stars, let alone even remains on the Great Nonprofits site. Now I wonder what other listings are outdated and incorrect.

This company does not appear to exist anymore. There's no website or resources or anything.

This nonprofit appears to no longer exist. Their website is gone, and they appear to offer no services or support in any of the categories they identify as areas of service.

I have known this organization for many years and it was a helpful resource. However, recently, the website has been removed, and it's even difficult to contact people affiliated with the organization. I know there were new board members, and several key leaders in the organization have departed - apparently taking the talents and ideas behind the organization with them, leaving what seems to me to be a shell organization! The current people seem to have no clear mission, and have disconnected themselves from the community that was historically served by this organization. Very sad to see a once helpful, thriving non-profit dedicated to promoting a variety of educational methods no longer there!

LIFE is such an amazing resource. I am constantly pleased with the information that the group sends out because it is of such a high quality and so useful for our homeschooling family. Additionally, their large annual events are noteworthy in quality and value. Thanks, LIFE!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

our homeschool life. We have attended their events, checked out their recommendations and utilized their resources.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

magically send it a dozen more committed volunteers and great financial resources in order for it to grow even more.

LIFE has kept me abreast of all the happenings in Florida with educational value. I have been able to pass this always accurate information on to others for use in their fields (teachers, librarians, artists) and other parents, to help with the ever difficult but always interesting tasks required of those involved with children. In any capacity. As a homeschooling parent, I've had to limit the online resources I used as it could take all day just to sort through them. However LIFE is one that I've always clicked on, as i knew there would always be something pertinent, from information of TED conferences to LAGO contests, and suggested answers to any questions that anyone asked.

LIFE is an invaluable resource for everyone. It is an incredible organization which provides a wealth of information. We are so grateful that it is available. It has helped guide our family through our homeschooling experience. The information it provides, such as the educational links, are extremely beneficial. LIFE also helps us and the community stay informed about important educational issues. We especially like attending LIFE Fest. We always recommend LIFE to everyone in need of an educational resource. It’s the greatest one we have ever come across.

Each time our family has an educational question we turn to LIFE. It has always been able to provide the answers.
