Category:What's New

This fall, Life’sWork of Western PA has launched a partnership with Black Locust Lumber. The new business relationship will provide our clients with the opportunity to assemble Black Locust’s wooden sustainable Proflow pavers and prepare them for production at our main facility.

Black Locust Lumber is a global company focused on green materials manufacturing a safe, sustainable alternative to traditional lumber. The company has strong environment sustainability ties to Pittsburgh; other projects include the Frick Environmental Center and the Falk School of Sustainability and Environment at Chatham University.

“This project opens the doors to many opportunities for people with disabilities by working with companies that are focused on sustainability in the Pittsburgh region,” said Timothy Parks, Life’sWork President & CEO. “And it furthers the agency’s vision of becoming self-sustaining by generating revenue that directly supports our programs.”

A group of Life’sWork clients had the chance to help out with preparations for the Emergency Nurses Association “Discover Pittsburgh” Conference. The education and networking event was held from September 26th – 29th at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center.

The Life’sWork team assembled VIP bags that were given out to the guests attending the Neon Nights Welcome Party. In collaboration with the Mercy Nurse Association and Theresa Sciullo Kaufman with Eventful Event Producers, our clients spent the day out of the building working in a lively, exciting atmosphere helping out a great cause. Thanks so much to all for the opportunity!

Life’sWork Talent Show 2018

Category:What's New

It was a packed house at the 2nd Annual Life’sWork Talent Show on June 22. Clients from a variety of different programs here at Life’sWork put on an even bigger variety of acts including comedy, singing, and dancing. Many popular acts returned from last year and many new ones surprised us all. We had no idea some of our clients had such talent hidden inside them and we’re glad we were able to give them a place to express themselves.

We would also like to thank Grand Canyon University for donating food, drinks, and dessert to serve to our clients during the event.
