Imagine losing your culture, losing your love, losing yourself. Abuse hurts more than one person.

WCH has been providing support to women in distress since 1978. Through a variety of confidential programs and emergency facilities, we’ve assisted more than 24,000 women and children with privacy, shelter and counseling in a time of physical and emotional crisis. Abuse hurts individuals and destroys families. Our mission is to help women and their children recover their lives in a non-judgmental environment with a vision of ending women abuse and its impact on families and communities, collaborating with other community efforts to assist men with their own healing journey.
