From Reuters: For special-needs kids, New Jersey rabbi offers chance of a ‘LifeTown’

How ‘LifeTown’ is empowering those with autism to be more independent

  • VIDEO from NJTV: At the heart of any community is its people. But for individuals with special needs, a lack of inclusivity and accessibility can make it tough to feel welcome. Leah Mishkin reports on a new “town” helping those with disabilities gain independence — judgement free.

Grand Opening of the HFNJ Sensory Park @ LifeTown

The Healthcare Foundation of New Jersey Sensory Park at LifeTown formally opened with a ribbon cutting. The HFNJ’s incredible gift made this incredible space come to life.

The indoor park serves as a fun space where children and families can enjoy time at the together in an inclusive environment that naturally break down barriers. It also provides opportunities for therapy in an immersive setting.

Very Special Tour with 100 Directors

Yesterday LifeTown welcomed 100 directors of special services from Essex, Hudson, Morris, Passaic and Somerset counties, representing tens of thousands of special education students.

We look forward to welcoming them back to LifeTown with their students.
