Picnic 2018

Picnic 2018

About This Event

Each year, LIFEDesigns recognizes our clients who have made accomplishments in their lives towards reaching their goals. This year, LIFEDesigns will be announcing our client awards at our picnic! We hope members of the community will come and attend to hear some of these great stories of accomplishment.

This event is FREE for LIFEDesigns staff and family, and clients and family. We ask that everyone else donate $10.00 for the lunch provided.

This year in partnership with Monroe County Parks and Recreation, there will be many festivities including: yard games, face painting, balloon animals, and maybe even a dunk tank! This is in addition to the wonderful entertainment provided by the Karst Farm Park itself, with the accessible playground equipment, splash pad, basketball courts and dog park.

This year's theme is Baseball, so come with your caps and be ready for baseball park food!

Thank you in advance to Best Buddies for presenting at this event, as well as Kiwanis Club of South Central Indiana on the Miracle League.

Event to Support LIFEDesigns, Inc.

LIFEDesigns  believes that everyone should be included in their community and 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.
