Downtown Women's Center

The mission of Downtown Women's Center (DWC) is to end women's homelessness in greater Los Angeles through housing, wellness, and advocacy. We envision a Los Angeles with every woman housed and on a path to personal stability. Founded in 1978 and located in Skid Row, DWC is committed to providing critical services in the most high-need area. We implement all activities through four streams of programming--Day Center, Housing and Supportive Services, Health and Wellness, and Job Readiness and Supportive Employment. Our innovative, holistic, and individualized approach to ending homelessness for women addresses all dimensions of participants' needs. In 2018 we will provide 100,000 meals, 14,000 case management sessions, on-site and community-based housing to over 250 women, and an array of job readiness, and health services to 800 chronically homeless and extremely low-income women.
