Women Move LA


Let’s work together to build a bridge out of homelessness

Help create a new path for women struggling to survive through your contribution to the YWCA Women’s Shelter. You will be part of a committed community answering the call to action from Mayor Garcetti and the First Lady of Los Angeles at their Annual State of Women and Girls Address to provide everyday essentials to those who need them most. We are proud to partner with the YWCA Women’s Shelter on this critical effort.

How can you support transitional housing programs (see full descriptions below)?


The Mayor’s Fund for Los Angeles is dedicated to supporting civic programs in partnership with the Mayor and the City of Los Angeles. MFLA will ensure every dollar donated through this page will go directly to the #WomenMoveLA program. For more information, please contact us at (213) 545-2058 or information@mayorsfundla.org.
