Words That Inspire Us
Everybody can be great. Because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and your verb agree to serve…. You don’t have to know the second theory of thermodynamics in physics to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.
WORKS develops and oversees rental housing properties that offer decent stable housing affordable to families and individuals of modest means, low income seniors, persons with mental health challenges, and persons with physical and developmental disabilities. To date, WORKS has developed and/or operated more than 1,600 affordable housing units, most in Los Angeles County, both on its own and in partnership with other nonprofit and for profit partners. Our projects range from multi-family new construction, to mixed-use commercial and residential projects, to historic preservation, to rehabilitation and repositioning of existing properties. WORKS developments include community centers that provide a hub for programs and classes that help residents realize their goals and foster a sense of shared community. Many also feature community gardens and nutrition programs to promote healthy lifestyles.
