Wish List

Every youth in LISA, Inc.'s care has survived some difficult life challenges.While on the path to adulthood,it is our responsibility to provide them with the environment and items that make them feel special and at-home. For most of these young people, the everyday fundamentals we take for granted are considered luxuries. See below how your contributions can make a big impact in our residents' journey. 


Gift Cards and Gift Certificates

Like every other adolescent boy and girl, the residents in our care will celebrate birthdays, graduations, holidays and achievements in the time they spend with us. Though we do receive some funding from the state, many times this is not enough to provide that special birthday dinner or a new pair of shoes for an athletic event. Donating gift cards or certificates are a great way to show you are proud of them, while respecting each person's unique style.  Listed below are some of the favorite places of our group home and independent apartments.
