Have you dreamed of publishing your own book? The Life Center has the opportunity for 5 members or 5 homes to write and illistrate their own book. Call the Life center for an opportunity. Write and draw away. Kits are due back to the Lifecenter by June 16, 2021. They will be collected, with or without orders. Orders wishing to be professionally published will be sent in with payment. Approximately 4 weeks after shipped back to the company, the books will be delivered back to you. Let family members know so they can order their own book that you write as well. The pictures are examples of the possibilities. If you choose to not have the books published the Lifecenter can assist in binding the kit into a booklet.

Please LIKE & SHARE! We are so thankful for all the community support!

The iPad loan program and virtual nights have been a wonderful way to safely stay connected with our members. Each week we get to connect with a craft night, a game night, a healthy living night, plus BINGO on the weekends!

The best part is the laughter that comes with every virtual event!

We are excited to help the LIFE Center of Freeborn County purchase more iPads that are being rented out to group homes and families so that members can participate in virtual programming. The members are so excited and grateful to be able to stay connected during these tough times of isolation and social distancing.

Help Save Medicaid ! Key U.S. Senators in the debate over the new bill that will cut Medicaid drastically for people with disabilities and their families, represent the following states: Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Missouri, Montana, Nevada, North Dakota, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, West Virginia, Wisconsin, and Wyoming. Tell your friends, family, and colleagues in these states to call 202-224-3121 and give their U.S. Senators this message: "Please vote NO on the "Better Care Reconciliation Act," the bill that that will cut and cap Medicaid. These types of cuts would be devastating to people with disabilities and their families." #ThisIsMedicaid #SaveMedicad #JoinOurFIght
