Welcome from John Mains, new SB Works Executive Director


I’m John Mains and I am excited to introduce myself as the new Executive Director of SB Works. This nonprofit group is one that I am proud to be a part of, especially given the emphasis SB Works puts on the community and the people that are behind successful small businesses.My background with economics, legal affairs, and business management reflects the full range of services that SB Works provides. I have worked in community development across the country and around the world, and when I moved to the area several years ago I saw that the sense of pride and heritage many neighborhoods around the District have is something truly special. I look forward to bringing my experience and passion to SB Works, so that we can make sure small local businesses stay the successful cornerstone of these amazing neighborhoods that we know them to be. Please feel free to contact us or stop by our Rhode Island Ave location to find out more about the services we can. If you need consultants or a working space, are looking for storefront improvement funding, or just want to say hello, our door will soon be open to the community. I am looking forward to serving, and am proud to be a part of SB Works!
