Loop Ministries Welcomes Ashley Schultz to our Volunteer Team!

Ashley was raised outside of Binghamton, NY in a large family of all girls. After graduating high school, she attended SUNY Geneseo for Geography and Urban Studies. Later she attended Graduate School in Ohio, pursuing a master’s degree in Geography. After spending some years in Ohio, she and her husband moved back to NY, and they are fully enjoying it here in Rochester! Ashley is currently working for a grant writing company, and in her day-to-day work week she helps local governments, fire departments, and police departments find funding for their unique projects. She was initially attracted to LOOP Ministries because she has seen the great work Loop has done in Rochester. After learning about the tangible results LOOP has brought to the community, she decided she wanted to be a part of the action!

Ashley will be helping LOOP pursue funding from a variety of public and private sources. This will include researching and finding grant opportunities and submitting competitive proposals. She has jumped in with both feet and already worked very hard with Executive Director, Daryl Staneck, to submit their first application together. She looks forwards to the day they successfully secure a grant for LOOP, knowing the dollars will help our team reach even more people in our effort to fight hunger in our city!

Lifetime Assistance help at Food for the Soul

Lifetime Assistance help at Food for the Soul

In 1978, a group of loving parents – with the backing of local and state agency leaders – founded an organization to give their children with developmental disabilities the tools to achieve the highest possible level of independence and satisfaction. These parents wanted their children to have opportunities to develop life skills, to pursue their individual goals and dreams – and to enhance their pride and self respect as productive members of the community.

Today, Lifetime Assistance, Inc. has grown into a community leader – and is the largest, most comprehensive agency in the Greater Rochester area serving children and adults with developmental disabilities. Lifetime provides a full spectrum of services for persons with Autism, Cerebral Palsy, Epilepsy, Intellectual and Cognitive Disabilities, and Neurological Impairments.

At Lifetime Assistance, we’re passionate about supporting individuals with developmental disabilities as successful participants in a respectful community.

The Program

Over the years, Lifetime Assistance has developed an extensive community volunteer program with over 50 agencies in the Greater Rochester area. Individuals can participate in a variety of opportunities based on his or her interest and skill level. These opportunities, in turn, provide the individuals with meaningful skill-building experiences.

In addition, we work diligently to maximize the use of community resources such as libraries, health clubs, restaurants, museums and local businesses.
