Our Future

Abraham Lincoln once said, “If you want to predict your future, create it.” These are profound and powerful words that describe our attitude, culture and everyday work here at Lakeshore Foundation.

We constantly work to use our time, energy, expertise and resources to be a leader in addressing the needs of people within our mission while developing new opportunities for a lifelong path to wellness. We want that experience to extend beyond our doors and our campus, and we want that experience to be grounded in clear evidence that we are indeed having a positive impact on those we serve.

There was a time when the majority of Lakeshore’s work was thought to be contained within our beautiful campus. Now, with the vision to “Improve the lives of people with physical disability around the world,” our opportunity, our reach and indeed our obligation goes beyond our walls and our grounds. There are no limits.

Our approach is now more expansive in our three pillars of activity, research and advocacy. As we look to the future, each step we take is grounded in creating an inclusive society that truly benefits everyone, and we are committed to doing the hard work that it will take to make that a reality.
