Would Works wins the 2019-2020 ChangeMaker Challenge!
This grant will fund the build-out of our new shop with workbenches, dust collection and lighting all aimed at creating a healthier more ergonomic work environment for those of our Artisans with compromised health conditions.
In addition, our team will be attending a series of capacity building trainings provided by the Executive Service Corps of Southern California as part of an inspiring cohort (pictured above) of non-profit leaders from across Los Angeles. We are so grateful to be given this opportunity!

Winding down this year, we express deep gratitude for your support and engagement with Would Works. 2023 began expansively: WW Community Builders Program Artisans and our team took a field trip to the snow-covered Angeles National Forest in the San Gabriel Mountains north of the city. Shirley is the Artisan Lead at Would Works and was born and raised in LA. She’s now in her mid-60’s, yet she’s never been up to the Angeles Forest. Our city is surrounded by abundant landscapes, but many residents who face barriers to employment also lack access to experiences in nature. This forest visit reflects the growth trajectory of Would Works, which we illuminate here.
