Ben was born in El Salvador and raised in the Silver Lake & Hollywood neighborhoods of Los Angeles.
He was referred to Would Works by the employment specialists at Chrysalis because of his extensive professional background in cabinetry and carpentry. Ben has struggled with incarceration and homelessness, but has been working hard to get his life back on track. We were blessed to have him join the Would Works team both because of his strong work ethic and shop skills, and because of his contagious positivity, inspirational determination, and warm personality.
Ben is currently looking to re-enter the LA workforce as a carpenter or cook and wherever he lands will be lucky to have him on their team. We believe in you Ben!
