The mission of the Downtown Women's Center 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.
The Downtown Women's Center (DWC), a nonprofit organization located in the heart of downtown Los Angeles’ Skid Row, offers more than 85,000 meals, permanent housing, and supportive services to nearly 4300 homeless and extremely low-income women each year. Our diverse and comprehensive programs provide the women we serve with resources they need to reclaim their self-esteem and achieve personal goals lost in the day-to-day struggle for survival on the streets. Before DWC opened our doors in 1978, downtown’s homeless women had no place to turn for services and support, as Skid Row’s shelters, pantries, and social services were accessible only to men. Many individuals have since offered their time and resources to create a safe place for women facing the harsh realities of homelessness. Nationally recognized as a model of effective services, DWC remains the only local resource on Skid Row that is singularly dedicated to addressing the unique needs of homeless women.
