We are a woman’s first point of contact.

We are the people that answer their call when they need help, we are the people that answer the doors with a friendly smile, and often, we are the ones with whom women share stories they haven’t told their closest friend.

We exist to further non-violent relationships and environments for women with or without children. Our vision is a world where women and children are safe and free from abuse in their environments and relationships.

Being part of WIN House means something. WIN House is about compassion, respect, and empowerment. We’re here when clients need us most. Join us and act.
