Supporting Ralph Scott Lifeservices, Inc.
Support activities at StarPoint Day Program and Shop our Amazon Wish List
The generosity of supporters like you allows us to provide a home for over 100 individuals with intellectual disabilities. Our operating costs are much the same as you experience in your own budget: rent, utilities, food, gasoline, etc. Staff are on-site caring for our residents all day, every day of the year. Your donations to our Operating Fund or the Ralph Scott Lifeservices, Inc. Endowment help us meet these daily expenses, as state and Medicaid funds fall short. We are grateful to you and our community for wanting to make a difference in the lives of those in our care.
How Your Gift Can Help
Donations from local businesses recently helped equip our day program, all group homes, and apartment common areas with computers and printers. This technology has improved the environment for the people we support and the staff who care for them. Updated audio and visual equipment in our conference rooms and training areas has helped improve and modernize our training program, which enables us to provide the best for our staff and the individuals we support. We are always looking at new ways to improve our technology for the people we support and our staff.
It takes a fleet of vehicles to get people to where they need to go. We were recently able to replace two of our aging vans with safer, better equipped models. Everyone we support requires transportation to work, to shop, to worship, and to participate in the activities they choose.
The people we support love to go places. Operating expenses are just one part of where a donation can help. We like to make sure that people’s dreams come true, Whether it is the State Fair, a movie, a show, an amusement or water park, or a vacation to the beach. We love to make that happen. Donations also help pay for the music and pet therapy programs at StarPoint. The people we support love being a part of our community and enjoying what is offered.

Ralph Scott Lifeservices, Inc. Endowment
Giving to the Ralph Scott Lifeservices Endowment is a way to give and support our mission in perpetuity. Our endowment is managed by the Alamance Community Foundation. In 2008, as part of our long range planning, the RSL board determined private funding would be crucial to providing the needed revenue to support RSL’s programs that serve the individuals we support. The RSL Endowment was established to provide that bridge in funds to support continue to provide quality services.
