About the Downtown Women’s Center
Founded in 1978, the Downtown Women’s Center (DWC) is the only resource in Los Angeles that is exclusively dedicated to serving the unique needs of homeless and very low-income women in Skid Row. DWC is a nationally recognized nonprofit organization that provides permanent housing and supportive services to over 4300 women facing homelessness and poverty each year. Its supportive community and much-needed resources allow homeless women to reconnect with their sense of self, reclaim goals lost in the day-to-day struggle for survival on the streets and move toward personal stability.
