  • Providing programs and services in Marin County for the empowerment of women and the immediate and long-term safety of women and children
  • Engaging diverse communities in domestic violence prevention

Description

Marin Abused Women's Services (MAWS) was founded in 1977 in response to the escalating levels of domestic violence in Marin County. Through the efforts of hundreds of volunteers and staff and more than 30 years of hard work, MAWS has developed a comprehensive range of support services and prevention programs including: an emergency shelter, transitional housing, 24 hour bilingual hotline, legal advocacy, and a men's program that offers men concrete ways to end their violence.
