Would Works wins the 2019-2020 ChangeMaker Challenge!

We are proud winners of the 2019-2020 ChangeMaker Challenge, awarded by the Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles. 

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!
