When you're in an abusive relationship, you become isolated from your friends, your family, even yourself. You're made to feel weak and useless. You forget how strong you really are. You start to believe that you can never make it on your own.
Women's Center & Shelter of Greater Pittsburgh (WC&S) empowers thousands of survivors of domestic violence each year, meeting them where they are to provide safety, emotional support, and the resources they need to write the next chapter in their stories.
Last year, WC&S served a staggering 8,000 adults and children. Your generous gift can provide:
• A life-saving call to our 24-Hour Hotline, where a compassionate advocate will work with the caller to create a safety plan that will ultimately help her to escape abuse.
• The very first night of safety in our Emergency Shelter, where a survivor and their children can sleep peacefully for the first time in what often feels like forever.
• Educational Support Groups to help them begin to heal from trauma and move forward.
• A new beginning and a chance for them to regain a sense of self-worth and confidence.
It’s incredible what a donation of any size can do. You have the opportunity to show survivors they can live life on their own terms.
