We are saddened by the tragic shooting of Kourtney Yochum yesterday in our community of Skid Row.
The Downtown Women’s Center mourns the loss of Kourtney, and we extend our deepest sympathy to her family, friends, and the residents and staff of the Gateways Apartments where she lived.
Every day at the Downtown Women’s Center we welcome through our doors women who have suffered unimaginable hardship and trauma, and yet who remain hopeful about their lives, and caring and supportive towards each other. Today, we reiterate our commitment to ensuring that all women in our community feel cared for and loved. To our sisters – we see you, and we are here for you.
