Rarely does one find an organization run as well as LIfe Skills. Most are aware of the deeply compassionate care Life Skills clients receive, along with the massive increase in Autism services provided by the Touch Point arm of the organization. As a Board Member, I feel it is important to point out a few practical issues LIfe Skills (LS) solves. As a community based provider, LS clients feel the same pride as we felt when we got our own place. Living, working and interacting with the community is paramount to our clients. In decades past, people with disabilities were sent of to habilitation centers (barrack style living) at the advice of doctors. it was the only way people knew how to help in those days. Now we know greater quality of life for our clients is found in the community, which also exposes neighborhoods to more diverse lifestyles and allows neighbors to interact with our clients. The many LF clients who work, pay taxes and add their talents to their workplace. I am proud to be a small part of LS, it allows me a way to help change people's lives in a proven and practical way. -Weston McKee
