What About Us
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”
Life Circle, a 501(c)3 non-profit, was founded by Michael Munson in 2010 from his experience caring for his mom, Barbara Munson in their home until she died. He realized how challenging basic senior care services were and wanted to help raise the level of caring services and awareness of aging issues. Healthcare consumers need to get educated and involved, there is much injustice in our system.
“Leaders of all institutions will have to learn that it is not enough for them to lead their own institutions….they will also have to learn to become leaders in the community. In fact they will have to learn to create community.”
-Peter F. Drucker
Our mission is to raise the level of care and participation for elders in our community; educating, advocating, empowering and guiding. Providing services that are not available without public/private collaboration for those that would otherwise fall through the cracks. Through working with other non-profits, businesses, government departments and the public the community will be blessed.
“In organizations we see it in the increasing recognition that with growing complexity and interdependence of society it is nearly impossible to accomplish anything of lasting importance while acting alone.”
Our vision is that we live in a region of incredible beauty, a generous place to live, work and play with people of all ages and stages of life. That our rich diverse culture thrives on the interdependence among the generations. The social, economic, physical and service environments address our complex needs and desires.
“How can we preserve our aspirations…and at the same time develop the toughness of mind and spirit to face the fact that there are no easy victories? One is a tough minded recognition that the fight for a better world is a long one.”
Solutions are discovered often between a small group, not at the institutional or municipal level. Let's come together and have a conversation about needs and solutions and then take one step-at-a-time, heart-to-heart, soul-to-soul, hand-in-hand.
“Do not wait for leaders; do it alone, person to person.”
