Lifeworks, a nonprofit human services provider that supports people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, has dedicated a new bistro at its Westwood campus in memory of Mercedes Warren, a longtime volunteer and supporter of the organization.

Mercedes Warren’s son, Tom, who is supported by Lifeworks, helped cut the ribbon to officially open the new dining and gathering space for Lifeworks’ individuals and families, employees and visitors. The Warren Bistro is located at the Abel Therapeutic Center and members of the Warren and Ramsay families, whose donations made the project possible, were on hand for the celebration.

The day habilitation program, which is also located at the Abel Therapeutic Center, hosted events throughout the day to celebrate the new bistro. Lifeworks President and CEO Daniel Burke also presented seven educational scholarships during the ceremony, including five to current Lifeworks employees who are continuing their education.
