While Lifeworks Career Development focuses on helping people with disabilities find jobs, Employment Support makes sure that they are able to keep them.
Whether you were just hired at a new job or you’ve been in a position for a while, Lifeworks can help.
After assessing your individual needs and goals, we’ll work closely with you to provide the appropriate level of support.
With more than 30 years of experience supporting people with disabilities on the job, we know what it takes to help you keep a job that you love. And if you no longer love your job or are looking to advance, we’re here for you.
