Join us for WIIIN’s Fall Philanthropy Event
Wednesday, November 20!
Please join us for an evening of community, light bites, and refreshments as we gather to build necessity-based kits for women served by two of Los Angeles’ largest, female-focused charities:
The Downtown Women’s Center
Good Shepherd Shelter for Battered Women & Children
About The Charities WIIIN Will Be Supporting:
The Downtown Women’s Center and Good Shepherd Shelter provide a wide array of services to assist, support and empower women struggling from poverty, homelessness and/or abuse.
The Downtown Women’s Center serves 200 women daily, providing a place to rest, home-cooked meals, access to clean bathrooms, showers, and changes of clothes, individual and group therapy, as well as trauma recovery services. They also provide STD/HIV testing, TB and cancer screenings, vaccinations, mammograms, and women’s exams.
Good Shepherd Shelter provides an intensive 6-month rehabilitation and residential program to help women and children rebuild family in a structured, supportive environment, including on-site, independent living facilities, therapeutic programs, and a fully accredited trauma-informed school for the children. Women are taught to become head of household, budget, cook, job search and rebuild family through social programming and positive modelling.
