Overview of Day: L.A. Works Day is a powerful day of action and advocacy. This year, L.A. Works Day 2018 takes place on Saturday, August 11th in Clover Park. At our second annual Pop-Up service event, hundreds of community and corporate volunteers will join together to learn about and address the critical issues affecting homeless families and youth.
