The Downtown Women's Center has had an exciting start to 2020 with the announcement of a new CEO and launch of a landmark report detailing the conditions of women experiencing homelessness across the city of Los Angeles. We also have also recently added a new dimension to the services we provide (emergency Bridge Housing for 25 women). We want our website to inspire confidence in our leadership, demonstrate the impact of our programs, as well as introduce more visual storytelling elements.
Our website is our invitation to the public whether you are an engaged citizen, business owner, or policy maker to participate in our mission to end homelessness for women in Los Angeles.
To provide permanent supportive housing and a safe and healthy community fostering dignity, respect, and personal stability, and to advocate ending homelessness among women
Founded in 1978, the Downtown Women's Center is the only organization in Los Angeles exclusively dedicated to addressing the needs of women overcoming poverty and homelessness in Skid Row.
