Downtown Women's Center, Los Angeles
The mission of the Downtown Women’s Center (DWC) is to provide permanent supportive housing and a safe and healthy community fostering dignity, respect, and personal stability, and to advocate ending homelessness for women. Founded in 1978, DWC was the first organization to exclusively serve mentally ill and elderly homeless women on Los Angeles’ Skid Row. DWC now provides permanent supportive housing to 119 women with special needs who were once without a home, along with a wide range of daily drop-in resources. If you’re a determined optimist who wants to change the world for the better, join the team that’s ending homelessness. Find out more: www.downtownwomenscenter.org.
