Our Community Engagement

At The Women's Advocacy Center, we envision communities that are trauma-informed, central locations in suburban communities where women can access needed programs and services, and collaboration among members of our communities who working together can help break cycles of abuse.

 

 See how we are working towards our vision in the communities we serve.

Car Donation

In 2023, we were blessed to donate cars to five of our clients with the help of our local partners. One of those local partners, Christian Brothers Automotive, has partnered with us again to donate our first car of the year! We are grateful to be able to support our clients in this way providing them with mobility to live their lives safely.

Food on the Table

Recently, the students at Compass Intervention Center collected 600 canned goods to support our Food on the Table program for families served in the Northaven community. Dr. Michelle Wilson, Interventionist, Neja Hubbard, and other staff delivered twenty boxes of food to our office.

 

Food will be distributed to families in the Northaven community who are experiencing food instability.

Expanding Our Reach

We have expanded our services to the Northaven community. After months of getting to know community leaders and the needs of survivors in the area, we launched our Safe Families Northaven program at the beginning of the year.

Our goal is to offer families in Northaven who have experienced domestic abuse, many of the services we offer clients served at our East location. The ultimate aim is to empower and support women in a way that leads to a thriving community.

AKA's Make a Difference 

Members of the Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc., collected boxes of household and personal care items to restock our donation center. Their generosity was overwhelming!

The items they restocked are essentials which are needed by our clients and their children, but which are not always affordable. We are grateful for the support of the sorority and for their commitment to helping us make a difference in the lives of our clients.
