Mission Statement

Woman's Place works to end violence against women by providing compassionate crisis intervention, facilitating women's transition to safety and healing, and educating the community.

Description

Woman's Place was founded by the Franciscan Sisters of Mary as the metropolitan area's only drop-in center for women caught in the terror and pain of domestic and sexual violence (DV/SV). After 16 years serving those most at-risk of DV/SV, as well as those in acute crisis, Woman's Place remains a center of peace, hope and healing for anyone experiencing emotional, physical or sexual abuse. At Woman's Place, the wellness of women is of supreme importance and includes healing from past abuse and the prevention of further violence, mental anguish and injury. As an emergency center for women to seek help and understanding during her time of need or small window of opportunity, appointments are not required and there are no fees for services, making Woman's Place a vital link in the continuum of care provided by the region's domestic and sexual violence agencies.

Key services keep women alive and, in many cases able to continue caring for their children, by promoting the healing process and developing a plan to transition to safety. Programs include crisis intervention, survivor support groups, case management and self-empowering educational programs.
