Celebrating 40 years of success, America Works is dedicated to helping people out of poverty by assisting them in finding meaningful employment. Here's to four decades of inspiring success stories and endless possibilities ahead!

America Works is proud of our country and the protesters who have demanded racial justice after the tragic killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and countless other Americans whose lives have been treated as expendable because of the color of their skin. We were founded in 1984 to fight for the rights of the disenfranchised, particularly those who are marginalized based on race.

Our work in combatting systemic racism includes bail reform programs, re-entry programs, and the collaborations we do with municipalities across the United States in support of criminal justice reform and providing job opportunities to those in need.
