Felicity Huffman appears to be making progress on her court ordered community service. The actress, 56, was seen Sunday at The Teen Project, a center in Los Angeles which serves at risk homeless and sex trafficked women. Felicity was released from prison a little over a week ago after pleading guilty to mail fraud, and must complete hours of work in the community in addition to her jail sentence. Community service? The convicted felon left the building carrying a large plastic tub which appeared to contain two muffin pans. She wore her hair in a ponytail in addition to cropped skinny jeans, a black sweater, scalloped flats, and sunglasses.

The Center—Paterson's former American Legion Hall originally constructed in —has been transformed into a facility designed to provide a safe place for hundreds of neighborhood teens each year.

The Center has a "Great Room" which will serve a number of functions, ranging from study hall to dance studio to teen coffee house.
