#GIVINGTUESDAY

26 Nov

Join us this Giving Tuesday by giving a little to help a lot! During this season of giving, you can give the gift of a future free from violence.  The Houston Area Women’s Center’s core mission is to help individuals affected by domestic and sexual violence in their efforts to move their lives forward.  We provide shelter, counseling and advocacy to support them in building lives free from the effects of the violence they’ve suffered.  Services are confidential, available to everyone and offered free of charge. Last year alone, our shelter provided safety, support and temporary housing to 1,198 women and 1,006 children. In addition, 8,588 adults and 4,811 children and youth received counseling and advocacy services.

Help us continue giving these courageous survivors the resources, options and support they deserve to move their loves forward to a brighter future.

It doesn’t take a lot to make a difference in the lives of domestic and sexual violence survivors…
