LIFEDesigns presents Toast of the Town sponsored by nimboIP. The 3 part series takes place at three of Bloomington’s finest beverage crafters. The first of the 3 part tasting series will take place on June 30th at Oliver Winery from 2:00-4:00 pm. Come support people with disabilities while gathering with friends in the vineyard and sample an array your favorite locally made wines. A portion of your ticket will be donated to LIFEDesigns to help people with developmental and intellectual disabilities receive the supports they need to live more independently.
LIFEDesigns has an extensive network of clients with amazing yet challenging background. One example of this is Jason (pictured above), a proud Bloomington local who loves his job at Texas Roadhouse, cooking and fishing. Jason is quite the gentleman who loves to make those around him smile and laugh. LIFEDesigns provides services to Jason to help him learn to manage his own finances as well as providing him with staff for daily support and an employment consultant to ensure he is able to meet his career goals. When Jason was in high school, he was in a car accident and spent several months in a coma while he recovered. After his recovery, he had experienced permanent brain damage that affects his daily interactions with others and his ability to focus. LIFEDesigns has been able to provide him the supports he needs to keep a job he enjoys for over 3 years now! He loves his independence and is very happy how LIFEDesigns has helped him gain more life skills.
