Our Impact

Ending Homelessness through Employment

At The Giving Keys, we pay it forward from our products to our people.

Our Product

Each one of our products is stamped with an inspirational word like DREAM, CREATE or INSPIRE. You’re encouraged to embrace your word, then pay it forward by giving your product to a person who needs the message.

Our People

Every product you purchase supports job creation for individuals transitioning out of homelessness.

"I chose the word LOVE for my Giving Key because I had finally decided that I needed to learn to love myself and then another."


"Strangers: You who are simply friends I've yet to meet. CREATE, triumphantly, with your life, loves, art, and compassionately sacrificial empathy for each wounded neighbor whom you meet during your every-day, walking around life.


"I ended up staying at my job, even though it felt like a safe, stupid choice, not a brave one. But I held on to that key and wore it every day as a reminder that sometimes the choices that seem safe can also be BRAVE."


Our 3 Keys to Unlocking Potential


We provide full-time jobs at the living wage in the city of Los Angeles to people transitioning out of homelessness. With each job, we offer benefits, paid time-off for housing, education and case management appointments, and a supportive environment that cares for the whole person.


Our community of co-workers, mentors and non-profit partners offers accountability, friendship and practical support throughout, and even beyond, the term of employment.

We invite every employee to be part of the solution as we volunteer, advocate and unite to end homelessness.


We create space for people to step out of their past and into their future.

Our core values unite us around our mission to pay it forward and remind us of the truth about ourselves: that who we are tomorrow is not defined by who we were yesterday, and that with intention and hard work, we can create a future that is brighter than our past.

One job at a time; one key at a time.
