Social Services (Non-Profit)
Rooted in the Community
LifeROOTS (Formerly RCI) is an Albuquerque-based tax-exempt non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that provides the community with a broad range of programs and services for children and adults with developmental, physical and behavioral disabilities in Bernalillo, Sandoval, Torrance and Valencia counties. Our innovative programs and services, led by certified, experienced and professional staff, assist people of all ages to reach their highest levels of self-sufficiency.
Founded in 1958, LifeROOTS was the first organization in the state to treat children with polio and cerebral palsy. The center has evolved into a multi-disciplinary provider of programs and services, including: Early Childhood Intervention, Therapy, Supported Employment and Adult Enrichment.
In the decades that LifeROOTS has been serving the community, we have learned much about people with disabilities. We recognize and honor the qualities that make each of our clients unique. We know each person has the potential to learn and grow, which can lead to a life of independence - and the dignity and self-respect that goes with it.
LifeROOTS serves more than 1,500 clients each year, receiving referrals from parents, guardians, day care centers, regional hospitals, public schools, state agencies, physicians and a variety of other sources.
Since 1989, LifeROOTS has operated affirmative business opportunities that provide valuable services for area businesses while providing employment for people with disabilities. LifeROOTS is a recognized leader in providing contract services to organizations in the areas of: Custodial Services, Grounds Maintenance, Packaging & Assembly, Bulk Mailing & Sorting, Shipping & Receiving, Presentation Preparation, Envelope Stuffing, Warehousing, Call Center Support, and Administrative Services.
We employ more than 57 individuals providing custodial services at Kirtland Air Force Base, the National Assessment Group and the Pete V. Domenici Federal Courthouse. In addition, the agency maintains several commercial contracts with community partners, such as Ethicon Endo-Surgery Inc., a Johnson & Johnson Company, TriCore Laboratories, Supply One Inc., Southern Wine & Spirits and other businesses throughout the greater Albuquerque metropolitan area.

At LifeROOTS we offer a great benefits package as well as a friendly working environment. We are always on the lookout for hard-working qualified individuals to join our team.
Qualities we value in a new employee are a positive attitude and an ability to solve problems in a creative way. Because we work closely with the disabled community, all of our positions require a background check and most require drug testing. Many positions require employees to drive for the agency, and for those positions, a good driving record is required.
