Barrio Works’ mission is to create self-sustaining, community-based programs and shop spaces for the youth and adults of Neighborhood Ministries that nurture and develop hands-on, industrial arts and entrepreneurial skills in an environment that encourages creativity, provides access to the resources required to act on it, and recognizes the reciprocity between creator, investor, and patron.
The bike shop at Barrio Works is a prime example of income generation at Neighborhood Ministries. Our privately labeled Barrio cruisers feature frames made in the USA, and are painted locally and hand assembled in our shop. We also sell quality, affordable used bikes and offer repair and maintenance services as well.
