Get Involved



At Eastside Works, we have partnerships with over 30 local businesses, non-profit organizations, social enterprises, and other agencies. Our goal is for Eastside Works to be a community resource and income generation hub to help people move along the Income Generation Continuum in the Downtown Eastside.

As a collaborative, community-run initiative, there are many ways you can get involved:

  1. Refer community members to Eastside Works. Print out and distribute our brochure and August schedule.
  2. Hire local residents to do work at your business or organization.
  3. Partner with Eastside Works to provide programming or income generation services.
  4. Donate to Eastside Works.
