I manage a recreational facility where hundreds of clients from Lifestyles have become members over the past few years. Their dedicated staff utilize our center several days a week making a positive difference in the lives of all who attend. From socialization to computer classs to game room activities or most importantly, developing a healthier lifestyle through fitness and aerobic programs...the Lifestyle team is an amazing crew who are extremely dedicated and can achieve greater heights with additional resources. I am very proud of the partnership we have created and look forward to future endeavors.

Lifestyles is a wonderful venue for our young adults with developmental disabilities. I've visited their restaurant and other areas where the clients work. It's such a rewarding feeling. My step, granddaughter is doing so well with them and will be placed in a group home shortly, My daughter and husband are so happy and satisfied, it took away all their worries.

As a professional who spent a career working with people with disabilities in both New York and New Jersey,I have been impressed with Lifestyles For The Disabled on Staten Island since its inception 15 years ago.They were one of the first agencies for adults with disabilities that provides a seamless transition from the school aged programs ending at age twenty-one to adulthood. Having on their Board of Directors parents of children with disabilites ensures a consumer minded orientation of the agency from Executive Director to each person on staff. The experience of the administration in this field is without peer.The clientele are constantly involved in full integration into the Staten Island community ; one sees the vans,the staff and the adults everywhere . From mall vistiations to shrubbery improvement projects to community activities such as minor league ball games and Christmas tree lightings , Life styles is there. They promote physical activities through swimming, bowling, zumba as part of the progarm. The many trips and excursions to Washington,D.C.,Hershey Park,Atlantic City provide peer integration and development of socialization skills. . They are an excellent organization .

I have observed the program personally . Beautification projects by the Lifestyles organization have helped schools and other community agencies manifest nature's wonders to the Staten Island world. I have seen the staff work with the Staten Island Special Olympics and help promote sports and physical actiivty for the population

They are very reponsible people who administer the program.. Short of doing an audit ,from external professional observation ,they seem well organized and run.

All four of my sons are part of the LIFESTYLES family. Each of them have discovered their talent and Lifesytles has given them the tools and encouragement to develope their skills. My sons look forward to going to 'work' and are proud of the outcome of their labors. Lifestyles has helped them grow as individuals and mature into fine young men.
Ron is in the GREENHOUSE and cultivates the kitchen garden, beautifies public spaces and makes flower arrangements. Kris is in the CAFE learning food prep and all skills related to the food industry. Damian is part of the RADIO STATION, JEWLERY MAKING, NEEDLE POINT and CREATIVE WRITING. Everything he loves. Alan is in the WOODSHOP and is learning the proper use of tools and creating beautiful projects.
I am grateful to LIFESTYLES for giving my sons such wonderful oppertunities.
