I would like to take a moment to tell our community about an amazing program that is about to start at Longwood University, Longwood Life.

Longwood Life is a two-year program to help set and reach goals for independence in life and work skills for young adults who have special needs.

Dr. Karen Feather had a vision. A vision for young people in the surrounding area who have disabilities, but also a lot of great abilities, knowing that these young people can be great assets to their communities.

Longwood University, the professors, Dean Chapman and the students saw Dr. Feather’s vision and accepted our young people with open arms, making the pilot program last year a success. A dream for many young people with disabilities has now become a reality. Grateful for Longwood and everyone involved for changing lives in the best way possible.
