Founded in 1978, the Downtown Women’s Center is the only organization in Los Angeles that exclusively focuses on serving and empowering women experiencing homelessness, as well as women who were formerly homeless.

The organization supports 119 women in permanent supportive housing, 94 women in apartments across the city of Los Angeles, and 25 women in our new BRIDGE housing.
