Mission Statement

Mission Statement WORKS delivers quality affordable housing and enriched services that respond to the aspirations of the people we house. Through our support and stewardship, we build equitable, heart-based sustainable communities and encourage resident self-determination. We envision community in a way that honors our collective cultures. We are passionate in our commitment to serve.

Description

  • Families with Children (68%)
  • Seniors (24%)
  • Transitional Aged Youth (aged 18 -25) (1%)
  • Individuals and Families with special needs, including formerly homeless veterans and others with special needs (6%)
  • Persons with Developmental Disabilities (1%)

Most of the households we serve are families or seniors earning between 25%-50% of the area median income (AMI), which in Los Angeles County translates to approximately $22,525 - $45,050 in 2017 for a family of four or $15,775 - $31,550 for a single individual. The majority of our households do not rely on public assistance. Rather, they are low-wage workers or retired workers now reliant on social security who were spending between 50-70% of their income on rent or living in substandard and overcrowded conditions prior to moving into one of our developments.
