Lifelong Access' partnership with Carle Health & Fitness Center provides gym memberships and fitness center support services for Lifelong Access staff and people with intellectual and developmental disabilities supported by Lifelong Access.
We provide a community-based recreation program called "Recreational Opportunities at Lifelong Access" or R.O.A.L.A. for the people in our supported living homes.
The C.I.A. is a self-advocacy group at Lifelong Access that was created in 2009. C.I.A. stands for Change to Independence Altogether. It is one of the longest running self-advocacy groups in the state of Illinois.
Welcome to Lifelong Access.
You may know us as Marcfirst, but we've recently undergone a name change. Why? Because in every phase of life, it’s never a question of if we helped. It’s how we help that truly counts. And how much we helped. Because our clients never outgrow us. And, we never outgrow them. Hence, our new name: Lifelong Access.
