Our Mission

Topanga Women’s Circle (TWC) is committed to making a difference to
homeless families as they move into transitional housing. TWC turns sparse,
institutional apartments into comfortable homes. By providing new and like-new items, we help create an environment of comfort, warmth and dignity.
