Life Services Alternatives was founded by parents who had a dream of establishing homes for their adult children with special needs. In 2002, LSA began a journey to establish quality homes and nurturing services so that adults with developmental disabilities – including those with enduring medical needs – could receive life-long services while living in a community, not an institution.
LSA founded offering adults with disabilities community-based living options.
