In partnership with our Downtown neighbors JOAN, ICA LA, and Redling Fine Art, join us in supporting the Downtown Women’s Center this holiday season! DWC is Los Angeles’ only organization focused exclusively on serving and empowering women experiencing homelessness and formerly homeless women. The DWC’s mission is to end homelessness for women in greater Los Angeles through housing, wellness, employment, and advocacy.
The first 70 donations of $100 or more to DWC will receive a handmade ornament produced by LA based artist Seth Bogart. 100% of the donations go to the DWC and can be made on their website at www.DowntownWomensCenter.org by clicking DONATE in the upper right corner. Once your donation is complete please send your receipt and mailing address to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be in touch about your ornament to be shipped by 12/15 or sooner.
About the Downtown Women’s Center Founded in 1978, DWC was the first:
- Permanent supportive housing provider for women in the U.S.
- Health clinic exclusively serving women in Skid Row community (and remain the only one today)
- Drop-in Day Center exclusively serving homeless women in the city of Los Angeles (and remain the only one today)
The Downtown Women’s Center’s mission is to end homelessness for women in greater Los Angeles through housing, wellness, employment, and advocacy. The DWC provides up to 1.000 to-go meals to women in skid row each day.
The homelessness crisis in Los Angeles has been intensified by the current coronavirus pandemic making the DWC’s advocacy all the more necessary. Many women experiencing homelessness are reliant moon the Center for meals, basic hygiene needs, safety, and community. You can support the DWC as they have doubled their daily meal service, distributed thousands of hygiene kits and face coverings, and continue to move women into permanent housing.
