MADE by DWC is the Downtown Women’s Center’s café and gift boutique offering organic coffee and tea, fresh fare, and unique gifts and accessories, including handmade products created by the women of DWC.  MADE by DWC also provides on-the-job training and earned income opportunities for homeless and low-income women in the Skid Row community.  

We partner with groundwork and Simply Salad for our delicious food and drink offerings, and we also now sell our own homeMADE pastries - including scones, muffins and cookies!

One hundred percent of proceeds from MADE by DWC go directly to programs and services for homeless and low-income women at the Downtown Women's Center.

  “A surprising treat near Little Tokyo in downtown LA!  They have sandwiches, cold salads, etc. (around $7). I had an Americano; the espresso was smooth and nutty with little acidity. Excellent! I'm definitely making this a regular meeting spot and it's good to know it is providing support to local women on the streets.”

“Delicious iced coffee! They are working with premium coffee beans and syrup, and it's obvious. Also, all the proceeds are used for the Women's Center! They have a nice set up, high ceilings, lots of natural light, modern decorations, but cozy at the same time because of all the homemade merchandise and community seating. Hidden treasure in downtown. I’ll definitely be coming back!”
