Meet the Makers
At The Giving Keys, our mission is to provide jobs to people transitioning out of homelessness in LA. One job at a time; one key at a time.
“Since joining The Giving Keys, my attitude on everything has changed. I like coming to work and feeling that I’m a part of something bigger than myself - feeling that I am needed. The Giving Keys gave me a second chance and I am so grateful for this opportunity.”
“Joining The Giving Keys has affected my life in a lot of ways - not only financially, but it has also opened me up as a person. I didn't trust many people when I got here, and this team knocked that down."
“The Giving Keys helps you go beyond just getting by day to day - they help you pursue your dream. They’ve truly helped to motivate me as a person. I believe if you clearly manifest something it’s more likely to happen. My word is DREAM and I’m putting my dream into action. I dream of making my baby’s dreams come true. My baby’s dream is my dream. And my future is my baby's future.”
“My department was laid off from JP Morgan back in 2012, and it was really difficult for me to find a job. I ended up on a park bench in Santa Monica and I think I would still be there today if it hadn’t been for Chrysalis, which helps people get back into the workforce, ultimately leading me to The Giving Keys. Now I feel like I’m doing something really useful for people in a similar situation that I was in.”
