Connections LIVE Events

In November, the LIFE team was brainstorming ways of coming together collectively with others, while remaining physically distanced. Through this conversation, an idea was born to host regular events for ICOF employers, their staff and network members to gather together via our newest favorite technology, Zoom! With excitement, our entire team embarked on planning, inviting and coordinating Connection LIVE events! Read More...

Connected Socially while Physically Distancing


Dana, a LIFE Resource Coordinator left a small birthday gift and cookies for Maryann's birthday. They came for a drive and picked up her gift from her front steps. They are doing fabulous and spend time baking, cooking, quilting, doing puzzles and staying up late to watch movies.



Clarence is spending a wonderful day at home. Despite physically distancing, he is finding peace and contentment in at home activities.

Stay safe and healthy everyone!







Although we can't be together, it is still important to get some fresh air or  take a ride to see some new scenery. 

We are all in this together - stay safe and healthy!
