Why Give to Life’sWork?

Help us transform lives.

Life’sWork has a well established and distinguished history of service to the community focusing on improving the quality of life for individuals with disabilities by providing opportunities for meaningful employment.

Every year Life’sWork raises the money it requires to support these programs and services through a combination of public funding, revenues generated by our business services division, and through the generosity of contributions from individuals, corporations and foundations. Donations are used to help pay for programs when individuals don’t qualify for other assistance and to create or expand new innovative programs that benefit people with disabilities.

Thank you for Supporting our Mission.

Help ensure our ability to empower those with barriers to employment.
