On August 10, 2020 (one year ago today), Life’sWork of Western PA moved from our previous Forbes Avenue location into a new facility located in Pittsburgh’s South Side. Our new location was renovated to have a light, open feel and has allowed us to offer a welcoming space for clients that work in the facility daily while also providing more opportunities to engage with one another and the community.
Those who work with Life’sWork know our passion for finding meaningful employment opportunities for individuals with disabilities and other socioeconomic barriers. However, what some may not realize is the extent of our commitment to evolve what the experience of meaningful employment includes. Our new location signals the growth in employment opportunities that we have created for our clients. Since we made our move just last year, 10 new partnerships have been created to provide different job experiences for the individuals that we help to employ. In this new location, Life’sWork has also successfully grown the RECOVER program, in which we help individuals recovering from substance use disorder and navigate the many challenges of obtaining employment.
Life’sWork of Western PA looks forward to a new era of growth while searching for opportunities for innovative solutions when considering how we can best serve their clients and the Pittsburgh Community.
