LifeTown is making a significant difference in the lives of so many. Thank you for making my own spirit soar!

Gordon Gee,
President, Ohio State University
  • LifeTown (Columbus OH) is a unique interactive world where children with special needs have fun while they practice important life skills through role play.
  • At LifeTown children with disabilities find a place that has been specifically designed to meet their needs.
  • Through role-play, they practice important life skills, such as making and keeping appointments, visiting the library, banking, shopping or even applying for jobs.
  • LifeTown is more than a community center or therapeutic facility. It is a house of friendship.
  • Our caring and supportive volunteers are the key to the success of LifeTown. By role-playing the various positions within LifeTown, volunteers allow the students who visit to practice everyday functions and interactions in a safe and controlled environment as they make the transition from classroom lessons to the real world experience.
