Women’s Renaissance – Employment Program

Women who find themselves homeless often find themselves exceptionally vulnerable, facing particular challenges related to their gender. Many have experienced domestic violence, sexual violence, and other trauma on the way to homelessness, and often are further victimized on the streets. That is when the Weingart Center’s Women’s Renaissance program can help.

When on the street, they are more vulnerable to assault and rape. In order to create an ideal environment to foster recovery from trauma, and the transition from homelessness to self sufficiency, the 10th floor of the Weingart Center is an exclusively female zone, where our Women’s Renaissance program provides 54 beds of transitional housing

This program provides housing for up to two years to women who are homeless.

Services provided include:

  •  Housing Services: Shelter, safety, three hot meals a day, hygiene supplies, clothing, and Life Skills classes
  •  Case Management: Individualized Service Plan, benefits enrollment assistance, family reunification, and financial literacy
  •  Workforce Development: Job Club, Clothing Boutique for job interviews, mock interviews, and employee training
  •  Clinical Services: On-site
  • Recreation: Women’s Day, holiday parties, Al-impics

    I am trying to find transistional housing for a women in the process of receiving her green card. She currently has an A# and is working with legal aid to receive her green card. I work for permanent housing but it is funded by HUD and they will not house her until she has the green card in her hand which will be 9 months form now. Can your womens renaissance program help her?

    Hello. I am trying to help a homeless lady, who is seeking a job. Her presence was so compelling that I promised to help her. She is currently staying at a homeless shelter in the Venice community of Los Angeles. She stated she has job experience in clerical work, and asked me if I knew of any available jobs. Would your Women’s Renaissance services be able to help her?
