Help us continue vital services

Although Prop HHH and Measure H provide crucial funding for housing and services in Los Angeles, they do not include funding for many of DWC's day-to-day operational costs and Day Center services. We rely on community support to continue providing the programs and services we know are effective in ending homelessness for women. Supporters like you make our work possible!
