Currently WORKS has successfully developed more than 1,100 affordable housing units, providing attractive and affordable homes to families of modest means. Most of the households we serve earn between 30%-60% of the area median income (AMI), which in Los Angeles translates to $23,790- $47,580 in 2009 for a family or four.
The majority of our families do not rely on public assistance. Rather, they are low-wage workers who prior to moving into one of our developments were spending between 50-70% of their income on rent or living in substandard and overcrowded conditions. Our projects range from multi-family new construction, to mixed-use commercial and residential projects, to historic preservation serving individuals, families and senior citizens.
