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

    Hello im looking for help for my 56 year old mother who just moved to California and really wants to make it on her own. She is staying with family but may be homeless soon. I hope you all can help her get on her feet. She wants her own life back. Please email back as soon as possible.

      I have requested that someone from the Women’s Renaissance program contact you. Otherwise you will need to bring your mother to our Hope Row Resource Center on the corner of 6th and San Pedro. We are open Monday-Friday, 8-4pm. An appointment is not necessary. She will need to bring ID and SS card.

    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?
