We Can Help
Women In Distress believes that each survivor of domestic violence has the right to a safe, secure home and the capability to self-determine their violence-free future. That is why we center our efforts in providing an environment that will help our participants recover from the traumatic effects of victimization and develop an understanding and awareness of the dynamics of domestic violence by empowering them to gain independence and self-sufficiency.
Is to stop domestic violence abuse for everyone through intervention, education and advocacy. We strive to accomplish this mission through a 24-hour crisis hotline, emergency shelter program, individual counseling, support groups and professional trainings which are aimed at educating the community on domestic violence. Our confidential services are offered, free of charge, to victims of domestic violence no matter their race, sex, age, religion, mental or physical disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, veteran or military status, immigration status or language spoken.
Women In Distress currently operates a 132 emergency bed shelter, as well as provides ongoing counseling and support groups for those not in need of emergency shelter. All services offered are at no cost and are available in English, Spanish, Creole, and Portuguese.
