Crisis Center North provides thousands of hours of free educational/empowerment counseling to adult and child victims of domestic violence each year.
In 1978, thirteen women, representing various groups, joined forces with volunteers from the community and coordinated their effort, time and resources to establish the North Hills Women's Center (NHWC). NHWC developed a specialized program of intervention, support and education. In November of 1982, NHWC changed its name to Crisis Center North and became incorporated.
