Helping Survivors of Domestic Violence

How to Help

At Women’s Center & Shelter of Greater Pittsburgh, we believe that everyone has the right to live free from abuse. You can help make that a reality.

Survivors of DV

Each year, Women’s Center & Shelter serves more than 7.500 adult survivors and their children experiencing domestic violence through a system of programs and services designed to help them start a new chapter in their lives. By making a tax-deductible donation, you are providing the survivors of intimate partner violence with the gift of safety as they receive the care and support necessary to begin a journey of healing.

Your generosity makes a tremendous difference, as $0.84 of every dollar goes directly to our programs. Though the issue of intimate partner violence is a devastating one, there is hope. We see it every day on the faces of the women and children we serve. You may never know their names or see their faces, but your donation will change a life and break the cycle of violence.
