We need your help now more than ever.

This is the time to make a real impact. We are raising funds so that we can bring back our furloughed staff as soon as possible and expand support for our clients. Your gift will help ensure our ability to empower those with barriers to employment.

We are accelerating our original goal for completing our fiscal year Annual Fund, which ends June 30 – our new target deadline is now.

As with many organizations and non-profit human services agencies, Life’sWork’s operating budget has been dramatically and negatively impacted by the pandemic crisis. Our major revenue streams (consisting of reimbursement for our client services as well earned income from facility-based employment and small group staffing programs) have been eliminated or substanitally reduced. Life’sWork management has taken aggressive steps to reduce operating expenses, which has unfortunately included furloughing 70% of our staff, with remaining staff receiving reduced compensation while working remotely to meet the client and community needs outlined above. As with other small businesses and organizations, we are seeking relief through recently announced federal and state programs, but the results and timing of those efforts are uncertain.

Thank you for your generous support of Life’sWork in the past. Now more than ever, we welcome your consideration for support going forward.
