Connecting Women to Permanent Housing Throughout Los Angeles County
Our Community-Based Housing Program connects single unaccompanied women and women with children to permanent housing and supportive services throughout Los Angeles County. The program operates through partnerships with the Los Angeles County Department of Health Services, Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority, California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services, and private foundations.
Community-Based Housing case managers provide each woman with the individualized support she needs to regain personal stability.
- Rapid Re-Housing assistance to any woman needing housing, particularly for women escaping domestic violence, to connect them with safe, permanent housing as quickly as possible
- Support for women veterans through housing vouchers, move-in assistance, trauma recovery resources, and help navigating the complex process of applying for veteran benefits
- Case management for women living with severe mental or physical health conditions to develop long-term healthcare strategies
“My case manager’s support didn’t stop when I found a home. Working with DWC helped me realize I didn’t have to give up on the dreams I had for the life I wanted to live. I’m now enrolled in a nursing program and on track to become a RN.” – Jecella, Community-Based Housing Program participant
