Downtown Women's Center

The Downtown Women's Center was picked by Lilith Fair founder Sarah McLachlan as the local charity for the all-female tour's Los Angeles area stop next week. The non-profit, which provides housing and services to homeless women on Skid Row, will receive $1 from each ticket sold for the July 10 event in Irvine.

Voting was conducted by the tour's fans on Facebook, with the top choices sent to McLachlan for final selection.

Downtown Women's Center has been located at 325 S. Los Angeles since 1976. The service provider had planned to vacate the building to provide space for the Medallian development, but instead will be renovating the pair of structures it occupies on the site. It is also renovating a building at 434 S. San Pedro into a center that will contain 71 apartment units.
