Who We Are
Since 1965, Lifeworks Services Inc. has been a champion for inclusion. Lifeworks was founded by families who recognized the importance of advocacy and breaking down barriers for people with disabilities to be part of the community.
As an industry leader, Lifeworks continues our commitment to self-determined support, careers with competitive wages, and developing innovative opportunities that enhance everyday lives.
Vision & Mission
We envision accessible, equitable, and diverse communities.
Our mission is to partner with people with disabilities to drive change by increasing opportunity and access in the community.
Values tell us what’s important. They are the foundation of who we are and how we work together.
At Lifeworks, our values are also the pillars to our culture. They are part of everything we do and define the expectations we have for ourselves and each other. We stand by these principles. They guide our decision making and how we carry out our mission.
As Lifeworks core beliefs, our values set us apart and are the blueprint for our success.
