Make It Work Program
Make it Work is an employment pathways program designed to support vulnerable women as they find a way back to themselves.
We have partnered with the Los Angeles Mission ("LAM") to launch our pilot "Story Pillow Project" - a "Test/Try/Learn" model which works alongside women who are residents of the Anne Douglas Centre at the Mission to work on a story, and craft it into a beautiful pillow for sale. The LAM shares our vision of a stronger, more connected, safe and empowered Los Angeles.
By designing and making useful, beautiful, sustainable products we not only provide training in marketable skills, but most importantly provide a safe space for participants to find the confidence and feelings of self worth that so many have lost, and are essential for recovery and reconnection with the community.
