Focus on Law host Beth Polner Abrahams presents Lee A. Ackerman, Executive Director of Disabled and Alone / Life Services for the Handicapped: www.disabledandalone.org.


Since January 2007, Lee has served as Executive Director of Life Services, a non-profit agency based in NY with a national mission to provide Advocacy Services, Comprehensive Planning and Trust Services to individuals with disabilities.


This role helps Lee address the needs his own family struggled to address: "As guardian of my disabled sister, and after experiencing first hand the difficulties in ensuring her services and my mother’s fear of what will happen upon her death, I truly recognize the need for peace of mind and care that Life Services provides to families of individuals with disabilities.”



Previously, for over 17 years, Lee was Residential Services Director at Sunshine, Inc., an Ohio non-profit providing residential and vocational services to over 300 individuals. 


Active in the Ohio Provider Resource Association (OPRA), Lee chaired the ICF / MR Program Directors Committee and was a member of the State and Local Policy and Reimbursement Committee. He has received special recognitions and awards from the state provider association in Ohio for his dedication, commitment and services for people with disabilities.
