On May 31, 2019 join our students and staff at our 5th annual Dance-a-Thon fundraiser, an event that raises money for L.I.F.E. Adult Day Academy and its programs. The goal of this event is to raise $25,000 to support our current program and foster future program concepts. 

In 2018 L.I.F.E. Adult Day Academy assisted over 90 physically and/or cognitively impaired individuals achieve social and/or academic goals. Students had boundless opportunities to learn activities of daily living skills as well as social skills. More importantly, they were given the chance to develop confidence, to feel wanted, and to develop dreams for their future.

Your donation is needed to continue fostering this much needed program. Small class sizes and greater instructor contact continue to be what we find works best for our students. LADA will be adding more space to the cooking class/kitchen. This will allow for more students to participate in the class as well as more accessibility. A successful fundraiser would allow us to close the gap between actual per unit cost ($17.21 per hour) and the amount that we are allowed to bill the Medicaid waiver ($8.91 per hour).

 We are still in need of sponsors for several students for the Dance-A-Thon. Please pledge a determined amount per song, and please name a maximum amount that you are willing to contribute. Make checks payable to L.I.F.E. Adult Day Academy. All in-kind donations will also be accepted. All contributions are tax-deductible. Please stop in the school, visit our website or call 260-436-5232 for more information or to be a sponsor
