This spring the Sam Tocker Comprehensive Services Center presented its first annual Gospel Fest. The event came from the participants in the Sam Tocker’s self-advocacy group.

The Gospel Fest was well attended with participants from other Lifespire programs and family members.  Congratulations to all or our singers!


Lifespire Success!

The Queens Council on Developmental Disabilities hosts an annual Celebrating Success which acknowledges the individuals with intellectual/developmental disabilities in their achievements in one of three categories including success in supported work and day programs. Three nominees who received awards are near and dear to us – Yolanda Archer, Michael McDermott and Yoharmelin Reynoso.
