Downtown Women's Needs Assessment

Take action today.

Women living in Los Angeles' Skid Row speak out.


The 2016 Downtown Women's Needs Assessment is a community-based research project conducted by the Downtown Women's Action Coalition every three years. It is the sixth in a series of comprehensive surveys on the needs, characteristics, and conditions facing homeless and extremely low-income women living in downtown Los Angeles. This year, three hundred and seventy-one surveys were collected on five main topics: Demographics, Housing, Healthcare, Violence Against Women, and Community Resources.

WHAT'S NEXT?

prophhhfb.pngWe are thrilled to announce that Proposition HHH passed in November 2016 with a 76% margin of approval!

Thanks to Mayor Eric Garcetti, Council President Herb Wesson, Councilmember Jose Huizar, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, and all the advocates and service providers who supported and voted yes on HHH, we are taking a major step forward in ending chronic homelessness for women and men in LA.

Proposition HHH will provide $1.2 billion for safe, clean housing, as well as facilities to assist with housing and health services.

Now that Prop. HHH has passed, the City of Los Angeles will be deciding how best to distribute the funds, and we are working hard to ensure that women are represented in those plans. Please share the Downtown Women's Needs Assessment with your network using #SkidRowWomenSpeak to get the word out!
