  • About the Organization

    LifeWorks is a local health and human services non-profit in Austin, Texas dedicated to transitioning youth and families from crisis to safety and success. By providing the region’s most comprehensive safety-net of support, LifeWorks annually serves over 10,000 individuals seeking assistance in their lives. Our continuum of services includes twenty programs in the areas of Counseling, Housing, Education/Workforce Training, and Youth Development. Using a strengths-based approach, individuals are encouraged to utilize as many of the services offered as they need in order to move their lives forward and create generational change.

    At LifeWorks, we take pride in being an LGBTQ-inclusive organization. Through our Circles of Sexuality program, staff members are educated on the unique challenges of acceptance and discrimination that LGBTQ youth experience. Each of the eight LifeWorks locations throughout Austin are safe spaces that empower the individuals we serve to be open and honest about who they are. Our Emergency Shelter for Runaway, Abused, Abandoned and Foster Care Youth, our Young Moms & Babies Shelter, and our Transitional Living Program all have zero-tolerance for bullying. We believe that every individual deserves at least one person who is fiercely and unconditionally devoted to his/her success, and LifeWorks strives every day to be an advocate for the clients we serve. Please take a look at our website and contact us if you or someone you know could benefit from the various programs and services we offer.
