The Downtown Women's Center is the only facility exclusively for homeless women downtown, and women are the fastest growing segment of homeless. So, the DWC got to work, and Friday unveils its new home - the Annenberg Foundation Downtown Women's Center Wallis House, named for lead donor Wallis Annenberg. Off-Ramp host John Rabe met the DWC's CEO, Lisa Watson, in the shiny new kitchen.

This week, we follow up with Laurel, see how she's doing, and what her plans are for the future, if any. Video of Laurel, produced by KPCC's Cecile Gregoriades.
