Even when life is difficult, every adult has inner strengths—and that’s where we start.

Caring LifeWorks NW counselors provide adult prevention, mental health and addiction services that focus on individual strengths to improve quality of life—all while keeping the adult in the community whenever possible.


At LifeWorks NW, we look for early warning signs of serious problems for adults—and then address the underlying causes to prevent those problems.

  • For African-American adults at-risk of tobacco addiction, we provide education and prevention services, focusing on getting the adult and community involved in preventing tobacco use.
  • For young parents and parents-to-be, LifeWorks NW offers training and support for creating strong parenting skills and a safe home environment.
  • For families at-risk for abuse and interpersonal violence, our caring and dedicated team provides a full range of services to meet individual needs.
