An Innovative Community For All

We praise all accomplishments, big or small. We come together to lean on and learn from one another. We believe that by working together, we can accomplish more good and create real change. And we are an extension of the families and communities we serve.

We empower families

We are creating opportunities for lifelong success


Life Lab Kids Foundation is providing an important service to members of our community and the county at large for populations that are under served. Their vision for growing roots in Ferndale will serve to only strengthen that impact, while at the same time providing a catalytic boost for community and economic activity on our Hilton corridor. Persons with special needs have just as much a right to a full life as anyone. To have an organization providing the specialized services, positive reinforcement and programs that create pathways to that full life in Ferndale, as a city that prides itself on progressive inclusion, its a benefit to our residents and those of the surrounding region, for whom such services are not as readily available as they should be. We look forward to LLK’s continued pursuit of growth and the fulfillment of their vision for the people they serve in our community and beyond.

It’s no secret my heart, my son has autism. I am always looking for ways and places to help him learn skills, along with extracurriculars. LifeLab Kids Foundation in Ferndale is turning out to be just the place I was looking for. Cozy and comfortable and challenging, are some of the words I would use to describe this place. My son just finished his music therapy session today which I listened in on, and it was awesome how he responded. I highly recommend checking this place out if you have a child in your life with special needs.

Can’t say enough good things about Art Therapy with Bridgette! She understands our child like no other therapist ever has. She truly cares about our daughter and is always so thoughtful in her approach. After years of trying different therapies, Bridgette is the only service provider that our daughter has actually asked to see, and she looks forward to going to LifeLab. While we haven’t tried the other services I have met many of the other staff members and they have all been very kind and welcoming. The facility itself has been well thought out and it’s been awesome watching the space come together.

LifeLab Kids has been such a blessing for my son and our family. It is a safe place for him to have fun, gain confidence, and build connections. A place where people encourage him and lift him up. I cannot say enough about how warm and inviting everyone is here. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

It has been amazing to see my son’s quick progress at LifeLab Kids. He went from being able to paint with the Art Therapist for 2 seconds to 21 minutes in only two months time. He’s also dribbling a basketball for the first time which is really exciting! We are so grateful for this new therapy center.

My son absolutely loves going here! I love the fact that he is actually enjoying something so much, and I have seen so much progress in him in a short period of time. Couldn’t recommend it more!

The therapists have been so great with my son and are great at giving us updates and feedback. I can tell he already feels comfortable with them, and he looks forward to his sessions. I look forward to what’s yet to come.
