Ann Hill (1948– )
Social Work 1978

Ann Hill founded Creative Lifestyles, an organization serving developmentally disabled youth in the South Bronx. Seeing that the population was served primarily through agencies based outside of the Bronx, Hill went into New York City public schools to document the need for community-based services. She spoke at school gatherings and ultimately recruited up to 500 parents and their children, documenting their needs; she took the documentation to Albany. Today, Creative Lifestyles has two day programs and two to three state of the residential facilities. She was ahead of her time.
