LifeStream was founded in 1976 by a group of concerned parents seeking better care for their adult children with intellectual and physical disabilities. There were few options then for quality care, and many remained in institutions with limited services and unfulfilling lives. The establishment of LifeStream created respectful, professional care for those in need.

LifeStream has grown to become one of the premier non-profit human service organizations in southeastern Massachusetts. Despite our growth, we are still committed to the early vision of those parents who fought so hard to enrich the lives of their children.
