Living Arrangements

Lifeworks is committed to providing beautiful homes in our local communities with high-quality professional supports in order to enhance the lives of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

Each person we serve in our Residential Programs is empowered to choose a beautiful home or apartment in a community where they will thrive and become part of the neighborhood.

As a family member or friend advocating for someone with a developmental challenge, it’s important to find opportunities to help your loved one meets challenges successfully, grow as an individual, and to lead a satisfying, meaningful life.

Each program is custom designed to meet the unique needs of the individual. Whether residing in a home with others or living independently in the community, our well-trained staff provides experienced guidance and attentive, compassionate care.

All of our residents enjoy the right combination of independence, support and the feeling of community.


  • Build collaborative partnerships with families, friends, and communities
  • Ensure a continuum of person-centered supports and choices
  • Advocate for the protection of human and civil rights
  • Develop and retain exceptional, supportive staff
  • Provide visionary leadership that is actively engaged in defining future standards of supports
  • Sustain sound stewardship to advance mission, financial, and organizational integrity

Program Offerings

“The home is the center of our neighborhood. Together we’ve had countless barbecues, block parties, football parties and fundraisers, through it all, the home has always been the driving force that unites us as a community. People always think our neighborhood is so generous and helpful to the brothers, but in reality we are the ones who have benefited from living next to the group home. Growing up amongst all different types of people, especially mentally and physically challenged individuals, has taught me not only the importance of acceptance and equality, but more importantly the value of each day and how some people, while more disadvantaged than me, continue to greet each day with a smile.”
