Women’s Crisis & Bridge Housing Program

The Midnight Mission opened its Women’s Crisis and Bridge Housing Program in response to the growing homelessness crisis. Every night, more than 14,500 women experience homelessness throughout Los Angeles County, many without a safe place to sleep. Through our program, we are able to offer them shelter.

A Safe Place for Women

Located in Los Angeles’ Skid Row, the Crisis and Bridge Housing Program focuses on homeless women in need. Over the past three years:

  • Female homelessness has increased by 55 percent, which is five and a half times higher than the rate of men.
  • Over 90 percent of those women have experienced physical or sexual assault.

We’re Partnered with Premiere Service Providers

The Women’s Crisis and Bridge Housing Program works in partnership with other premier service providers serving women in the community, including the Downtown Women’s Center.

The Crisis and Bridge Housing Program at The Midnight Mission aims to end episodes of homelessness by providing the following:

  • On-site medical and mental health care
  • Temporary housing
  • Meals
  • Case management and service triage
  • Access to our on-site school
  • Computer learning center
  • Job and career counselors
  • Housing resources

We aim to efficiently connect those in need to permanent housing whenever possible, or triage them into the most appropriate service-enhanced housing available. We work in close collaboration with the Los Angeles Homeless Continuum of Care’s Coordinated Entry System (CES).
