Diversity

Why Choose Lifeways?
Diversity, Innovation, Partnership, Respect, Compassion, & Community

At Lifeways, we know our clients and staff have their own life paths. We recognize your background, and traditions offer unique individual insight, opinions, and ideas.  It is this individuality that we welcome and celebrate.  Diversity is the spark that ignites a new way of thinking that develops an understanding, leading to growth, and ultimately to success – for both the organization as a whole and the individual.  

Diversity, equity, and inclusion advocacy requires the ongoing examination of all Lifeways activities. We seek to identify the barriers and challenges to diversity, equity, and inclusion. We advocate for any and all needed changes that aid in making every person feel welcome, wanted, valued, and partnered with for their success. 

Lifeways welcomes clients and staff from all walks of life regardless of race/ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, disability or anything that makes us different. We embrace your authentic self and will continue to support all members of our community in their own journeys.

"Today I had to use what I learned at Youth Mental Health first aid. I am humbled to be certified and thankful to have a tool to utilize during a crisis situation. I don’t know who to thank at Lifeways for making my free training possible but I want them to know it helped save a life."

Family Member of Client

"I feel better about myself when I have a job. I have more money which allows me to be more independent. I am able to buy things that I need — I can pay my way! I like being part of the community. I like my mental health friends but it is nice to get to know others in the community too."
