Life of Mississippi

LIFE in the Community

All six of the LIFE offices are active in the communities they serve. LIFE staff and Board members are involved in systems advocacy, community empowerment and seeking equal access for everyone. They serve on various boards and committees, such as:

* The Statewide Independent Living Council

* The Americans with Disabilities Act Advisory Council for the city of Jackson

* The Arc of Mississippi

* The Council on Developmental Disability

* The At Risk Task Force for Emergency Preparedness

In addition, we provide training and spend time in our communities participating in many events -
