LIFE Mower County

Learning, Inclusion, Fun and Empowerment (LIFE) is better together. We could not do what we do without all of you.

This past year has been an eventful one, including our name change, the new collaborations we have made and the new and current board members that have dedicated themselves to the organizations mission. Our donors, volunteers and our fundraising efforts support our programs as we continue to grow and serve those with intellectual and developmental disabilities to the best of our ability.

Thank you! As we go into the new year, think about how you can get involved. Share your time and talents.  LIFE Mower County depends on YOU!
