Employment Services for Adults with Disabilities
Finding the right fit can make all the difference. Our custom intake process begins with a conversation about interests and goals so we can place clients in a field that provides empowerment, satisfaction & enjoyment.
We provide employment support services for adults with disabilities that offer a range of choices in the nature of the job setting as well as the level of support each individual requires. Our goal is to help the individual find the setting that suits their individual needs and aspirations.
Life’sWork provides a supported environment for individuals more comfortable in a group supervised setting. While much of the time is devoted to direct employment, most clients choose to engage in our Community Participation program which affords many opportunities for clients to connect with the world outside our facility.
Individuals get to enrich their lives in many ways through community experiences of their choice, which include volunteer opportunities, cultural experiences, and recreation. The possibilities of new friendships, positive life experiences, and even employment are always within reach through these ventures.
For clients who are ready to embrace work opportunities beyond our facilities but who still require on-site job support, we partner with regional business who employ small client teams, accompanied by a job coach, to work in an integrated, competitive environment where they can grow, learn and experience new things.
Life’sWork brings nearly a century of experience placing and supporting individuals with disabilities in jobs that meet their skills and interests. Through assessment, training and placement support we provide our clients with the confidence, independence and skills they need to pursue more fulfilling lives.
