The Otto Bremer Trust* awarded Lifeworks with a $60,000 grant. This funding will be used to provide skill building and career development opportunities for people with disabilities in the Twin Cities and Mankato areas.
“Lifeworks has done an excellent job developing a continuum of support for people with disabilities to help them find and succeed in a career of their choosing,” said Daniel Reardon, co-CEO and trustee, Otto Bremer Trust.
Lifeworks is grateful for this support. The generosity of the Otto Bremer Trust makes it possible for us to champion inclusion. Lifeworks provides services that offer choice, independence, and a sense of belonging. With this funding, Lifeworks will continue to develop a holistic, self-determined service model for the people we serve. The model will assist with exploring interests and building skills entirely in the community while working towards their chosen career path. In conjunction with this effort, we will grow our network of employer partners while serving as a resource for them to build an inclusive workforce.
On behalf of the Board of Directors and the Minnesotans we serve, thank you Otto Bremer Trust for investing in Lifeworks and helping us encourage systematic change.
*The Otto Bremer Trust is a bank holding company and a private charitable trust based in Saint Paul.
