Nearly 200 women living on Los Angeles' Skid Row received donation blankets on Christmas Day in conjunction with USC With a Purpose Blanket for Blanket purchases. The 182 donation blankets were included in gift bags that the Downtown Women's Center gifted at a Christmas Party at their Day Center. Said Chief Program Officer Amy Turk, "This Christmas, the Downtown Women's Center gave out blankets from Sleep With a Purpose to nearly 200 women overcoming homelessness in Los Angeles' Skid Row. The women loved the blankets and want to thank everyone who made this beautiful gift possible."
Besides their Day Center, Downtown Women's Center also provides permanent housing for almost 120 women at a time. Incredibly, 95% of the women to whom they provide permanent housing do not return to homelessness.
