Dr. Delanie Young

Missouri Area Director

Prior to joining the Lift Disability Network, Delaine served as the Assistant Athletic Trainer at the Lindenwood University for 18 years. Most notably, while there, she researched, developed and implemented a successful Bachelor’s and Master’s in Exercise Science program.

Delaine’s wealth of experience makes her a key addition to the Lift Disability family. Her appointment represents our commitment to the individuals and families we serve and the challenges they face each and every day. Delaine is a passionate advocate for those affected by disabilities, as well as a strategic problem solver with great ideas and energy. The expansion of our programs and increased demands from those receiving our services led us to seek an addition to our team. We are deeply fortunate and grateful to have someone of Delaine’s character and commitment to fulfill this role.

Other roles Delaine held while at Lindenwood included the Assistant Professor in Exercise Science, Athletic Training, and Physical Education, Program Director of Exercise Science, faculty sponsor of student organizations, and Internship Coordinator for Exercise Science. Outside of teaching, she was the week-long Co-Director of High School Camp at Camp MoVal (Union, MO) for five years and currently is on the Property Board with Camp MoVal. Her life away from Lift consists of God, gardening, personal training, and enjoying nature. She and her husband, Ron, share six children and nine grandchildren.

Lift gives you the chance to spend time with amazing people who are learning to push their limits and break free!

Breakaway is an amazing opportunity to have fun, to grow, to find community and to meet God.


My son's life is immeasurably better than if we had not come in contact with Lift Disability Network. They have allowed us to say "Yes, we CAN do this!"
