Mission Statement

W.O.M.A.N., Inc. has serviced the SF Bay Area in its mission to end domestic violence since 1978. Over the years, the programs at our organization have evolved as needed to remain aligned with the needs of those we serve. We offer 24-hour multilingual crisis line and culturally sensitive support programs to domestic violence survivors, their friends and family. W.O.M.A.N., Inc. supports those impacted by violence using an innovative approach to services and programs that build stronger, safer communities.

We offer culturally sensitive support to domestic violence survivors, their friends and family. Here are our programs:

24 hour Multilingual Support Line

Survivors in crisis can connect with trained advocates who provide multilingual confidential crisis intervention, peer counseling, safety planning, and referrals 24/7.

In-office Advocacy

Survivors seeking information and support can obtain assistance during 'drop in' hours. Call for current times.

Latinx Program Services

Monolingual Spanish speaking survivors are offered individual peer counseling, support group, advocacy, case management, translation services, and court accompaniment.

Support Groups

We offer a safe environment for survivors to share their fears, angers, concerns, and goals with others in similar situations.

We offer ongoing individual therapy for survivors who are healing from the effects of domestic violence, and family therapy for survivors and their children. MFT Interns and Trainees are supervised by a licensed psychotherapist. Low cost weekly sessions are based on a sliding scale.
