All of LifePath’s programs and services are guided by the principle Every Day Lives.
LifePath has an agency-wide goal of giving people even more opportunities to participate in the community. For example, step inside the LifePath Laundry and you’ll see a number of coworkers of various ages, seated at tables, chatting as they wait for the next load to come in. A glance at their shirts reveals their favorite NFL team, professional wrestler, or vacation spot. It’s a friendly, casual scene. But as soon as the back door opens, and the big blue trolley rolls down the ramp, the action begins. In an impressive display of teamwork, they don protective clothing and begin to sort, load the washers, transfer what’s in the washers to the dryers and begin to fold the clean laundry. For some of them, this is a stepping stone to a job elsewhere in the community. For others, who are happy to tell you how nice their coworkers are, how much they all respect the boss and each other, it’s their career, and they’d be happy to stay here forever.
All individuals are treated with respect and dignity.
People from LifePath volunteer at places like Meals on Wheels, libraries, schools, community colleges, pet rescues, community gardens and many charitable organizations.
The LifePath Laundry offers full-time employment for adults with developmental disabilities, while providing quality laundry services to local businesses and community organizations.
