About Us

LakeCity Works supports people with mental illness to build on their strengths and access work experience, education, and employment. We offer a variety of programs and services tailored to assist people living with mental illness. Our belief that employment represents a crucial step in the recovery process for the individuals we serve frames our comprehensive support-based platform.

Over the years, our organization has seen continuous evolution, evolving from LakeCity Industries in 1982 to LakeCity Employment Services Association in 1986 and, most recently, to LakeCity Works in 2018. Today, we are an award-winning social enterprise managing multiple innovative ventures to benefit our community and environment. Services offered by LakeCity Works include access to employment, work readiness, volunteering, education exploration, on-site experiential opportunities, computer repair, recycling initiatives, retail experience, woodworking, and odd jobs services.
