handMADE is our signature line of unique gifts items created in collaboration between DWC program participants and community artists. Our product design workshops equip women with social and vocational skills in a supportive environment where women rebuild self-esteem, discover talents, and develop skills. By purchasing our handmade products, you contribute to breaking the cycles of chronic unemployment and homelessness for women in the Skid Row community. 100% of proceeds support Downtown Women’s Center programs and services.
