About Women of Worth

Women of Worth is a community benefit nonprofit organization that assists families in crisis and domestic violence victims to increase self-reliance and improve quality of life by helping them rebuild their lives with dignity, hope and safety. Women of Worth provides no-cost services, including short-term assistance for families in crisis and long-term transitional programs to enable women to safely escape domestic violence.

  • Transitional housing,
  • Emergency shelter assistance,
  • Counseling and support groups,
  • Furniture and personal items,
  • Educational and career assistance, and
  • Life skills training and mentoring.
