Grace Institute was originally staffed by the Sisters of Charity. The curriculum guide in 1898 listed cookery, millinery, child care, Red Cross, children’s sewing, and dressmaking as course offerings.
The name Lifespire is truly reflective of the organization’s aim of "Helping Individuals Reach Life’s Aspirations."
Marva Gumbs-Roberts and Maurice Hardison of Lifespire’s Gercek Residence were recently honored at the NYC Direct Support Professional (DSP) Conference held at Baruch College on November 6, 2015.
Lifespire CEO Mark van Voorst and Director of Supported Employment Gillian Lebron presented at the New York Market Radio (NYMRAD) Community Leaders Day Meeting at the Manhattan Marriott Marquis.
