Monitoring & Updates

Thank you so much to our community for all of your generosity and words of support over the last year. They have energized us to be nimble and think creatively about how to continue providing services as our participants became more reliant than ever on DWC for meals, basic hygiene needs, safety, and community. With your help, we were able to continue providing services without interruption, all while more than doubling our daily meal service, distributing thousands of hygiene kits and face coverings, and moving women into permanent housing across Los Angeles.

We are continuing to monitor public health guidance as we move through a staged re-opening of DWC spaces and services. Please continue to check back here for updates and consider signing up for our emails and newsletter!
