Would you like to donate today?
Donations to Transitions Life Center allow us to continue our mission to provide a safe, caring, and enriching community to adults with physical and intellectual disabilities. Your donation means we can offer financial assistance to qualifying families, hire and train a caring staff, provide engaging activities, & offer the personal care our members and their families rely on. Any family caring for a special needs individual will share with you the challenges each day poses. Knowing they have a place where their loved one is safe, happy and well cared for makes each day that much better! Thank you for making this a possibility!!
