About Us

The LifeWorks team of compassionate staff and volunteers is here to help neighbors facing economic hardship and accompany families on their journey to a brighter tomorrow.

The goal is simple: Empower neighbors to build secure futures filled with opportunity. To do this, staff and volunteers work hand-in-hand with families, addressing immediate needs and coordinating services here at LifeWorks and throughout the community.

LifeWorks takes a unique whole-person and whole-family approach to service coordination. We have a strong network of programs available to help neighbors overcome the wide range of challenges they may face including hunger, utility costs, child care, and language barriers. If LifeWorks doesn’t offer a service, we’ll provide the appropriate referrals to another agency.
