Mission Statement Life-Wire News Service, founded in 2015, is a first-of-its-kind service which distributes media content from the unique perspective of people with intellectual disabilities giving a new voice to the disabilities community. ©2019 For twenty years, Lifestyles for the Disabled has provided an environment where people with developmental disabilities find purpose and inspiration to create, work and thrive. In the Media Center, participants explore information technology and produce original content in their areas of expertise and interest utilizing video and radio formats. Utilizing Lifestyles’ media assets, Life-Wire News Service – the only media wire offering content by people with developmental disabilities – features stories that explore entertainment, sports, human rights, or more. Participants in the service (crew members) will produce their own content with the aid of Lifestyles staff to an extent depending on the crew members’ needs. The program connects crew members to the community in new ways and provides exposure to the public that will help to demystify people with intellectual disabilities.
