About The Organization
The Mid-Valley Women's Crisis Service offers safe refuge and support to women and children who survive domestic and sexual violence. Our programs and services inform survivors of their options and support them in their choices. A cornerstone of our philosophy is respect for the survivor's rights, including the right to decide whether to report to the police the crime or crimes committed against her. We work with survivors of any race, color, creed, religious belief or sexual orientation.
Our hotline is available 24 hours a day, every day of the year, serving callers in English, Spanish and other languages. We offer emergency shelter at Winston House around the clock, typically serving between 350 and 500 women and children yearly. In addition to a safe place to stay, we provide crisis counseling, advocacy and referrals to other community resources.
