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 removing 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.
Mission & Vision
Our mission is to serve our community and people with disabilities as we live and work together.
We envision a community where people with disabilities are more broadly valued, hired by employers, receiving support, and participating in ordinary activities.
Lifeworks core values are: Integrity, Respect, Empowerment, Collaboration, Innovation, and Accountability.
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.
