Women Organizing Resources Knowledge & Services (WORKS) was formed in April 1998 by women with extensive experience working in low-income communities of Los Angeles in the field of affordable housing and community development. Committed to developing strong, sustainable communities, we combined our years of experience in pioneering pragmatic and innovative models for affordable housing and enriched social service programs to advance family and individual viability.
WORKS has served over 4,300 individuals and families living at or below the federal poverty level and developed more than 1,100 affordable housing units. When WORKS embarks on a project, everyone involved benefits; this is our hallmark.
A Message from our President
I know firsthand that in order to thrive, families and individuals need a decent, quality and affordable place to call home and access to nutritious food. This is true in the best of times, and is especially true in economically challenging times.
Join us in building affordable housing communities where our children have a safe place to run and play, our elders live in comfort, and where organic and nutritious food is accessible and affordable to people of modest means!
These are the basics!
