I have done things that I never thought I could do. I used to have stress, lots of stress. I came here because of it. It has helped me psychologically because it keeps my mind busy all the time. Instead of thinking about the hurt, I think about what piece goes there!
— Guadalupe G.

What We've Achieved

Piece by Piece provides opportunities for persons living in poverty to earn supplemental income. Mosaic art workshops, taught by professional artists, and materials, with an emphasis on recycled items, are provided free of charge. With ongoing training and practice, participants achieve Artisan status and earn wages for their work completing  orders for mosaics and projects on every scale.

Reaching 1, 143 annually through workshop programs, Piece by Piece enrolled 162 in training workshops in 2016, graduating 29 to Artisan status. Mosaic art sales generated $60,000 in earnings among Artisans.  


Piece by Piece is a unique social enterprise operated in partnership with Skid Row Housing Trust to support wellness and stability among recently homeless residents living in supportive housing in the Skid Row community .

All of the items available in The Piece Shop are 100% handmade by Piece by Piece Artisans or artisans-in-training that have participated in workshops held at Star Apartments or other supportive housing sites.

The best way to support Piece by Piece is to purchase beautiful artwork or functional mosaic goods created by our Artisans.
