L.A. Works is a nonprofit, volunteer action center that creates and implements hands-on community service projects throughout the greater Los Angeles area. They strive to empower Angelenos to address pressing social issues through volunteerism and community collaborations. L.A. Works' programming is designed to impact two different but equally important constituencies - the volunteers who provide hands-on service to their communities, and the individuals (and environment or animals) who benefit from this support.
