College students buttress work with Lakeland clients

About 40 college students volunteer at Lakeland Village in Medical Lake through a program called College In-Resident Volunteers. The program allows students to volunteer in exchange for housing on Lakeland’s campus. The students work with staff to serve Lakeland’s 200-plus developmentally disabled client residents. CIRV program director Leroy Lemaster doesn’t know of any other program like it. Lemaster said it started in 1970 and sprang from the need for volunteers and the idea to use vacant campus apartments that were previously used for staff.
