The Southern California Chapter’s volunteer charity for 2015 is Downtown Women’s Center. The Center provides support to end homelessness through offering housing programs, personalized case management, on-site medical health clinic and public health outreach, health workshops and screenings, safe warm drop-in day center offering meals, education, computer literacy and employment assistance for homeless women.
