Help & Hope are Available Here
Whether you are seeking safety, a supportive community, or hope, we are here for your entire journey. Start by connecting with one of our trained domestic violence advocates by phone, text, or online chat.
Supporting Survivors Throughout Their Journey
Women’s Center & Shelter of Greater Pittsburgh is a source of hope for survivors of domestic abuse. By offering a holistic approach to healing, our programs and services provide the safety and support survivors deserve. We welcome survivors of domestic violence at different stages in their journey and work with them to meet their personal, individual needs.
You Are Welcome Here
At WC&S, all survivors can find help. We know that anyone, including men, LGBTQIA+ people, and non-binary/gender non-conforming individuals, can be survivors of intimate partner violence. We embrace everyone without regard to gender, sexual identity, race, ethnicity, age, ability, religion, language spoken, or any other factor. We welcome you as you are.
For Anyone Seeking Safety
Connecting to our Hotline Services through phone, text, or online chat is more than just a call for help. It’s the first step toward making a change, finding hope, and creating a life free from violence and abuse. Information and referrals provided by our advocates enable you to make confident choices about your next steps.
Healing & Support
Last year, Women’s Center & Shelter served over 7,500 adult survivors and children through our many programs and services. Using the Sanctuary Model, we support each individual survivor to shape the services they use based upon their needs and experiences.
Learn About Domestic Violence
Domestic violence can affect anyone of any race, religion, gender expression, sexuality, age, nationality, or financial background. Educate yourself and those you love most so that you can get help, and help those around you.
