Purpose:
To assist women who are victims of domestic violence, human trafficking and sexual assault

Funding:
Women of Worth is supported by the generosity of private donations, foundation grants, our WoW Reshop and fundraisers.

How we have benefited from being a member of CNL: 
The networking opportunities as well as the classes provided by CNL have been beneficial to us.

How our organization has benefited the community:
We were able to offer emergency shelter when DVSAC had funding issues and had to temporarily close its emergency shelter. We collaborate and coordinate services with DVSAC so that we offer clients a holistic approach that serves them during their initial time of crisis then continues services and support. We are pleased that we can help victims become “survivors and overcomers.”

Because Every Woman is a Woman of Worth!
