Damsel in Defense is honored to partner with the WCA and be recognized as a Freedom level Corporate Pillar to this organization. Our mission is to equip, empower, and educate women to protect themselves and their families, and the WCA’s focus on impacting the area of domestic abuse and sexual assault aligns perfectly with this mission.
Damsel joined the WCA in our vision of a community where individuals thrive in safe, healthy relationships in 2012. In that time, they have contributed over $60,000 in funding and many important in-kind items for our clients. In the last seven fiscal years, the WCA has provided 71,065 safe bed nights for women and children, 19,165 counseling sessions and answered 19,165 calls to our 24-hour domestic violence and sexual assault hotlines.
“The support from organizations like Damsel in Defense enable the WCA to provide counseling, court advocacy assistance, childcare, life skills training, financial education and other life-saving services. We are so grateful to them for their tremendous generosity and compassion for our clients,” said Lisa Uhlmann, WCA’s Corporate Pillar Manager. “We could not do what we do without the generous support of our community.”
Why support the WCA?
“Because our favorite partners are those who stand in the gap for others.”

Our success as a company has not only allowed us to invest in the work of the WCA, but to create the Damsel House Project; a long-term initiative to fund homes that are rescuing children out of sex trafficking in countries across the world. A key milestone in the timeline of this project was in March of 2019 when we were able to take a team of our top leaders to Cambodia to visit the first of our two homes. This trip was pivotal in illustrating that our Independent Damsel Pros are not only arming others and experiencing financial freedom, but also offering empowerment and healing to those affected by assault both domestically and abroad.
Our goal is to create an army of like-minded Damsel Pros, focused on providing healing to the hurt and hope to the hopeless. One by one, we are changing the statistics around rape and abuse and giving back to many amazing partner organizations that are making a difference in the lives of those who have been assaulted.
