Mission Statement

      The mission of the Women’s Center consists of two inextricably intertwined goals: to end violence against women and children and to work for fundamental social change that promotes equality for women and girls in society.  We plan to accomplish this mission through a variety of means including, but not limited to, the following:

     Educate professionals and the general public about the causes of violence against women, with particular attention to battering and sexual assault/abuse.

     Provide safe housing for battered women and their children as well as for victims/survivors of sexual assault when needed.

     Promote non-violence through the education and skills building of elementary and secondary students.

     Confront violence in all its forms including racism, sexism, ageism, ableism, antisemitism and homophobia.

      Challenge the legal, law enforcement, medical, and social service systems to respond in helpful and humane ways to victims of violence.
