Portrait of Nick Offerman

My favorite author, Wendell Berry, writes that "Good work is our salvation and joy," a sentiment I wholeheartedly second.  The opportunity to simply work hard for wages in order to afford the basic comforts of life is a great privilege that many of us in this country enjoy, and even take for granted.  Would Works provides people who are homeless or living in poverty with the simple dignity of doing good work.

By providing work experience and resources to those who need it most, Would Works offers critical support to individuals experiencing homelessness in Los Angeles' Skid Row. But beyond that, Artisans build community and life skills in a space were they are treated with dignity and care.
