Affordable Housing

Who We Serve

To Date

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.

Our Projects

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.
