Handcrafted goods that change lives
Portrait of Nick Offerman

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 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.
