About Us

Our Story

Dr. Anita Rothard has worked for over 40 years helping people with disabilities get their life back on track. Four years ago Dr. Anita Rothard and her husband Donald started a company to place people with disabilities in jobs. The company, Red Lion Jobs Inc., has since placed over 400 people. The Sarasota Herald-Tribune featured a story on Red Lion Jobs Inc. To read the full article, please click here.

Now, Never Stop Learning Inc. is their next venture.  The Rothard's have seen a real need for a Life Skills center for adults with disabilities.  They are continuing their legacy of helping those with disabilities improve their life skills to lead independent lives by opening Never Stop Learning, Inc. Again, the Rothbard's have funded this project out of their personal savings. The Rothard's are hoping to have donations from the community to keep this program active and growing.
