Safety, shelter and support to women and their families affected by domestic violence, sexual assault and abuse

Our mission is to provide safety, shelter and support to women and their families affected by domestic violence, sexual assault and abuse.

No one deserves, asks for, or provokes violence . . .

“I’ve regained trust in myself after I’d lost so much self-esteem over the years and you helped me understand that I was not to blame for the hurtful abuse.”

The Women’s Center has provided safety, shelter and support to women and their families affected by domestic violence, sexual assault and abuse for over 38 years.

I remember the feeling of constant fear. I was scared to have friends because of all the bruises on my face, not to mention he would be so jealous. The loneliness and heartache were unbearable . . . . The Women’s Center kept me safe and helped me to get out of this relationship . . . . I have broken the pattern of abuse. I am a survivor of domestic violence.”

All services and programs are free of charge and include:

  • Emergency Shelter
  • Transitional Living
  • 24-hour Hotline
  • Group and Individual Counseling
  • Onsite Childcare
  • Child Abuse Prevention Programming
  • Legal Advocacy
  • Employment Counseling and Life Skills Development
  • Community Education and Violence Prevention Programming
  • Information and Referral Services

I thought I lost myself completely . . . but everyone at The Women’s Center saw what I could no longer see . . . they believed in me.”

Yearly, we touch the lives of 9,000 individuals, free of charge, through a specially designed comprehensive range of services that emphasize prevention and breaking the cycle of violence.

I feel blessed to have had someone care enough about me to give me a packet from The Women’s Center. If not for that moment, I may not be here. The Women’s Center gave me encouragement, support, hope and a sympathetic ear. They helped me gain the strength and knowledge that it was not my fault that I was abused.”

The Women’s Center offers an empowering, integrated network of programs where women build peaceful, productive futures for their families.

A client referring to his high school graduation - “You helped make it possible. I may not know your names but I’ll never forget your faces or the help you gave my family. We stayed at your shelter when I was young. I am seventeen now. Without your help I don’t know what my mom would have done.”

The Women's Center is a life-changing and life-saving place where staff and volunteers help women and their families build healthy lives free from violence.

The Women's Center provided me a platform to start believing in myself. I would not be where I am today if not for the kind yet truthful words of my counselor. Today when abuse is sent my way I can call it what it is and not allow it to define me.

When you give to The Women’s Center you are giving hope to women and children who often have nowhere else to turn.
