As the first Black and Brown Trans-led social services and advocacy organization in the Midwest, Life Is Work has a mission to support and uplift trans people of color through direct services, activism and advocacy. To accomplish this mission, Life Is Work provides case management-guided programs assisting with employment, legal services, and safe residential options.
Life Is Work envisions a world where trans people of color can obtain safety and wellness after facing discrmination and/or abandonment from family and community resources. To accomplish this, Life is Work provides needed development skills, legal aid, and housing assistance to all transgender and non-Binary persons of color on Chicago’s westside.
You can help us achieve our mission and enhance the lives of black and brown TGNB adolescents by donating or volunteering.
We love our supporters and clients, so feel free to visit during normal business hours.
