Monarch Lifeworks in Cleveland, OH.
Lifeworks is a nonprofit organization committed to ensuring that adults with autism have more independent and enriched lives by providing opportunities to learn, engage socially, and participate in meaningful work.
Originally developed by Bellefaire JCB, Lifeworks was launched in 2013. The agency was created to extend both the reach and scope of specialized Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) services offered by Bellefaire’s Monarch Center for Autism, beyond what had previously been reserved for school-aged youths, to an adult population. Rooted in the Monarch Model, Lifeworks’ services embody the same philosophy and standards found in the other Monarch settings.
A dynamic interdisciplinary team comprised of behaviorists, educators, counselors, social workers, psychiatrists, nurses and college-degreed direct care professionals collaborate to provide specialized support and training for adults with ASD. Lifeworks affects positive change in adults with autism at home, at work and in the community.
Lifeworks is a partner affiliate of Wingspan Care Group.
