Bring Purpose Home

MADE by DWC is a Los Angeles based social enterprise created by the Downtown Women’s Center to end homelessness for women through job-training and employment in a supportive learning environment. Your purchase helps fund our career training and mentorship programs that provide hands-on training to end homelessness, and change lives!



In 2011, MADE by DWC was launched offering women the opportunity to earn income while gaining job skills and experience. Women are employed within the social enterprise and attend skill-development workshops while receiving additional employment support services. Through this innovative approach, we continue to help women develop skills and gain the experience needed to find employment to support their transition out of homelessness.



MADE by DWC has three businesses - our Café & Gift Boutique, Resale Boutique, and Home & Gift Collection. All three provide supportive and empowering working environments where women gain work experience in retail, food management, customer service, production, and inventory industries.

Every purchase you make at MADE by DWC empowers women transitioning out of homelessness.
