Houston Area Women’s Center

“What we want to do is provide women with relief from terror and a quiet freedom in which they can reconstruct their lives.” – From Houston Area Women’s Center Newsletter, Fall 1978 


For over 35 years, the Houston Area Women’s Center has worked relentlessly to help survivors affected by domestic and sexual violence build lives free from the effects of violence.  Given our humble beginnings – we started with nine active volunteers answering donated phones – we are proud at how we have grown. Today, we have 115 paid staff, a counseling and administrative building, a residential shelter for 120 women and children, a state-of-the-art hotline call center and over 1,000 active volunteers.


Every year through the week of December 7th, we collect new unwrapped gifts and cash donations for the Houston Area Women’s Center.  Gifts range from clothing (adult, baby, kid), personal care items, toys, gift cards, cash/check donations, etc.  We take pride in being able to give the many families being housed by the center a happy holiday season.  Seeing the kids smile is priceless.  So, if you would like to be part of this, please come by our showroom and drop off any gift you would like to donate.
