The Work-Collective Mission: To build and foster community for all members, enabling strong and sustainable connections to local businesses and non-profit organizations of Bend and Central Oregon.


Work-Collective was built with the goal of creating and fostering community as our guiding principle. With this in mind, we envisioned a modern yet comfortable workspace to allow members to thrive professionally and personally.
