Meet our Workshop Leader Krys

For our recent fundraising campaign one of our inspiring workshop leaders, Krys Shelley, made this video about their journey to Would Works. Krys' story shows how having the opportunity to work can profoundly change a life.

Krys is a Would Works workshop leader and a woodworker/team member at Offerman Woodshop. 
Thank You for Sharing your Story Krys!
