About LifeStart

LifeStart was founded by Mary K. Hall in 2001 as a subsidiary of her family's 30-year-old business, Living in Family Environments (LIFE Inc.).  Mary has been an administrator of MR/DD services since 1978 and used her support experience to create LifeStart as a non-profit licensed family, treatment, and medically-fragile foster care agency.  We primarily serve the Columbus Ohio area including Franklin County and its neighboring counties.

 

Our Mission Statement

"To create services which enable families and people with disabilities to live in a home environment with the same life choices as a person without disability."

Client Testimonial

"My husband and I reside with our three children who have severe disabilities.  Our lives are busy and at times stressful, but very meaningful.  We always know, at the end of any hectic or challenging day, that we are doing the right thing with our lives.  As we look at the smiling faces of our special children, we know we are truly blessed."
