On August 18, 2021, Lifetime Assistance held a groundbreaking ceremony for the 6,800-square-foot addition and interior renovation of the Lowry Center in Clarkson. The $2.7 million project is the first in the agency’s $5.1 million Independence Together initiative that will significantly change how services and supports are provided to hundreds of people with developmental disabilities who rely on the centers daily. Construction will be completed by spring 2022.
In addition to the Lowry Center, two other Lifetime Day Services Centers are being transformed; located on Paul Road in Chili, and Weiland Road in Greece. Each fully accessible center will include seven new Learning & Work Suites – providing life skills training, job readiness, community-based vocational and volunteer services, clinical, nursing, and behavioral services, and occupational and physical therapy – all in comforting and motivating environments to meet rapidly changing service needs.
SWBR is providing architectural, interior design, and structural engineering design services for the project.
Lifetime Assistance is the largest, most comprehensive developmental disability services agency serving children and adults in the Greater Rochester region. To date, their Independence Together campaign has raised over $3.3M, including a $750,000 grant from the Golisano Foundation.
