Langley Residential Support Services (LRSS) recognizes that adults with developmental disabilities want to be a part of their community, have friends and relationships, and be involved in activities that interest them. These desires are not only normal, but healthy too!
“I love/like to: read about sports, listen to country music, play basketball, learn about math, read Harry Potter, listen to classical music, cook, read the Washington Post, play the drums and learn new things…”
…Just a few of the varied interests of LRSS residents
Through our Life Enrichment Programs, we partner with many organizations to offer a variety of activities including: basketball, bowling, softball, literacy club, summer reading club, friendship club, outings to sports events and cultural activities--plus much more.
By participating in activities with others, individuals with developmental disabilities can practice the social skills they learned from their Langley counselors. This helps build their confidence and self-esteem, which enables them to become more self-sufficient.
“We are providing such enrichment to their lives so that they can live just like you and I do. Their social lives are busier than mine. They have opportunities to see what the world is about.” …A Langley Program Manager
Our contract with the Fairfax-Falls Church Community Services Board does not include the provision of these types of activities. In order for the people in our program to participate in these initiatives/programs, we must rely on our own fundraising, the help of volunteers, and the contributions of generous individuals and organizations. You can help us in this effort by making a donation to Langley, and designating the funds to be used toward Life Enrichment Programs.
