Housing by LIFEDesigns: Welcome Home

About This Campaign

Housing by LIFEDesigns develops affordable and accessible housing that is stylish and accessible to the community. Crawford Apartments in the heart of Bloomington was recognized by the Lieutenant Governor of Indiana's award for Excellence in Community and Economic Development.

In both Bloomington and Columbus, Indiana, finding quality housing that is also affordable is next to impossible. In addition, the average person who receives SSI spends over 100% of their monthly income on housing. The need for housing that is accessible both on the inside and to the community is incredibly high in both the Bloomington and Columbus communities.

The Welcome Home Fund is devoted to developing more affordable housing specifically in these areas as well as the rural communities surrounding them.

Our housing is built for individuals, families, people who struggle with chronic homelessness, and people with disabilities.

It takes a lot of funding and community collaboration to develop this kind of housing project. This campaign supports the development of projects like this creating new, beautiful, accessible housing for people of all ages and abilities.

Campaign to Support LIFEDesigns, Inc.

LIFEDesigns  believes that no one should be segregated from their community and that everyone has talents and abilities. We exist to provide the support and opportunities that people with disabilities need to achieve their goals. This is reflected in everything we do, from our in home support services, community education, supported employment, to Housing by LIFEDesigns.


Our organization was founded in 1982 by a group of parents who had children with disabilities. They believed that everyone deserved to live a life of purpose, and  there should be a better life for their children than living in an institution. Our values remain focused on community and inclusion. We choose to see the positive attributes that everyone possesses and  define people by their abilities rather than the challenges we all face. We strive to support our customers to find valued social roles, which connects them with their highest purpose—using their strengths for something greater than themselves.

LIFEDesigns along with the Monroe County Parks and Recreation Department and many other partners, built the Accessible Playscape at Karst Farm Park in Bloomington, Indiana. This is a truly unique project in the area, featuring a wheelchair accessible playground with a splash pad, and ramps that lead up to slides. LIFEDesigns is also a housing developer, and has built several projects focusing on Affordable Housing that is both accessible and stylish. Crawford Apartments is permanent supportive housing, a truly unique development providing permanent homes for people who are chronically homeless and have a disability.  Crawford Apartments was recognized with an award from the Lt. Governor of Indiana in 2014 for Community and Economic Development.
