Our safety is dependable, inclusive and compassionate.


The WCA’s two 24-hour crisis lines are the first critical step for people seeking safety. Staffed by Client Advocates familiar with a variety of community services, this is the place for people with questions for themselves or for friends and loved ones.

Safe Shelter

For people leaving an abusive relationship, safety is their most important priority. At the heart of our efforts is a secure shelter and transitional housing which provide 56 beds for women and children. Client Advocates guide residents through their transition. The WCA offers an array of programs including individual counseling, case management, parenting and support groups.

Court Advocacy & Safety Planning

Not all of our clients need secure shelter. Some find safety with family or friends and many with the support of a protection order obtained in court. Court Advocates provide support and guidance about court proceedings and make referrals to help clients who need legal assistance.
