The Forsberg Beautification Program (FBP) was created in partnership with the Forsberg family, Lifeworks, Inc., and The Arc of South Norfolk in memory of Jane Forsberg. Jane served as an early President of The Arc of South Norfolk, and dedicated years to The Arc’s Human Rights Committee. She was devoted to ensuring that the support and services we provide for people with disabilities are exceptional. Through that, Jane became a huge proponent of advocacy, community interaction, and cared how things looked, specifically the homes and buildings. With these three components in mind, the fund was created with a desire to support and create a welcoming environment for people of all disabilities.

To contribute to the Forsberg Beautification Program, please click on this link to support FBP with a credit card. If you would like to mail a check, please send to Development, 789 Clapboardtree Street, Westwood, MA 02090.

Founded in 2019, the Forsberg Beautification Program has already supported a wreath making program and funded a new stone wall meticulously designed and built by John Murtagh. We’ve started to work on creating raised garden beds and flower boxes at Lifeworks residences. At our Westwood location, the vegetables from our garden are utilized for cooking classes. Your support will help continue and expand our current projects and create new programs/beautification projects for our participants.

Fund Objectives

  • Enhance the properties and homes with plantings for grounds, vegetable gardens, window boxes, holiday decor, etc..
  • Create connections through inclusive opportunities for community volunteers.
  • Generate new educational programs for people of abilities.
  • Enhance program physical spaces.

Jane’s Daughter – Kathy Forsberg

Kathy has been an active participant in Lifeworks’ programs since 1962. Kathy and her housemates have been able to directly benefit from the tomato garden that she helped to plant at her residence, funded by the FBP. She and her housemates were able to tend the garden and cook with the fresh tomatoes. Kathy also enjoys daily walks, Diet Coke, spending time with her housemates, and attending The Arc and Lifeworks’ events.
