KeyBank has been “Making a Difference” since 1990 through their annual day of community service. Employee volunteers demonstrated Key’s purpose to help communities thrive by contributing their time and talents to a variety of non-profit community organizations, including Living Resources. During this year’s Neighbors Make the Difference Day on Tuesday, September 14, 2021, their volunteers painted the ramp and porch of one of our residences in Saratoga County.

Thank you, KeyBank for making a difference in the lives of individuals we serve!

Summer is a state of mind. The staff and individuals served by Community Habilitation at our Lionheart Apartments kept the summer vibe alive in their hearts as they celebrated the changing of the calendar and seasons.

Publicized to our participants as a “Post Labor Day Get Together,” party-goers relaxed indoors while enjoying music, a meal and each other’s company. Lawn games and other outdoor festivities were planned, but as if on cue, the weather had turned dreary and drippy. No matter. There is a saying, “Eternal summer lies in a grateful heart,” and our group was just happy to be together.

COVID protocol being a perennial party crasher, a balance was struck between getting some folks together while being as safe as possible. Everyone wore masks and stayed as distanced as possible. Participants were served food, much of which was individually wrapped by our staff wearing masks and gloves.

The event was very well received and the hope is to continue having regular social mixers throughout the fall and winter.

Karen Wright has been on a quest to live independently for many years. Her journey began more than 17 years ago when she joined Living Resources’ Albany Supportive Living Program. Within this Supportive Individual Residential Alternative (IRA) she lived in a designated apartment with regular staff support for skills such as apartment maintenance, cooking, cleaning, shopping, money management, and general organization.
There, her staff embraced her desire to live in an apartment of her very own, helping her identify several goals needed to achieve this dream. With hard work and determination on Karen’s part, and education, support, and encouragement from her Direct Support Professionals, Karen learned how to make and keep a budget, pay her own bills and manage her own medications. The amount of effort Karen put into this accomplishment is even more apparent when you factor in that she did all of this while working part-time and raising her son, Keyshawn, who is now 22 years old.
With the successful accomplishment of all her goals, Karen’s moment arrived. She moved into her own apartment and is now living the independent life she always wanted. This is not to say that she will be completely unsupported. One of our Community Habilitation Instructors will provide assistance needed to help her keep up her skills and ensure she is as successful as possible.
"There is a difference between a dream and a goal. A dream is a gift you want to be given. A goal is something you work to achieve." ~ Brian Knapp, Creative Pursuit

Our After School Program (ASP) started this school year off by welcoming excited students back to in-person activities to all six of our program sites!

The Draper ASP site enjoyed their first field trip of the school year by going to Indian Ladder Farms picking two 1/2 bushel bags of Honeycrisp and Gala apples. Matthew had the best reach for the reddest apples at the top of the trees. On the way back, everyone was talking what we can make with all the apples gathered. Matthew was thinking apple smoothies while Emma was talking about homemade apple sauce and pies.

More about our After School Program:
The primary focus of the After School Program is to help children and adolescents develop social and recreational skills. We do this by providing participants with opportunities to participate in a wide variety of activities, such as: Field Trips, museum & library visits, bowling, arts and crafts, baking and cooking, indoor and outdoor games, and holiday activities.
The After School program provides supervised recreational activities to students at six program sites throughout the Capital/Saratoga Region. Children and teens in the ASP enjoy a variety of activities, and look forward to the opportunity to socialize with their peers after their school day. Parents of kids in the ASP enjoy the peace of mind that comes with knowing that when they are unable to be present, a dedicated staff of skilled adults is ensuring the safety of their loved one.

Our 12th Annual Golf Tournament has been postponed! Due to the 90% chance of rain forecasted on Friday, and because we want everyone to have an enjoyable day, we made the difficult decision to postpone our tournament.
The new date will be Friday, October 8, 2021 and we will do our best to get Mother Nature to cooperate with beautiful October weather!

This is my son Joe who lives at one of the residences run by Living Resources. I know that the pandemic has been very stressful on so many people and on so many levels! Joe is very well taken care of and seems happy. I visit him weekly, socially distant with a mask. It’s not the same ! I miss our outings Stewart's Shops to get green ice cream. Our walks at Collins park and hanging out at my house with Prince, my cat. But most of all our hugs!! Hope the Governor and DOH and OPWWD will make changes soon ! Thanks!❤️❤️
Are there any online groups that I can participate in?
Excited to be shipping out 164 Gallons of Hand-sanitizer to Living Resources New York. Great organization with 41 locations in NY check them out.
Hello. I am a TBI survivor. I was wondering if I could get more information on what services you offer.
I know someone whom you serve whose EBT card was allowed to expire Aug. 31. They have many times tried to reach their worker, who does not seem to know how to fix this! What the ----!
I had the privilege of decorating a tree for The Schenectady Historical Society's Festival of Trees again this year. A huge thank you to all the Schenectady DCOP participants for all their hard work making ornaments and decorating! A great time as always ♡
