Alternatives for Battered Women is now the Willow Center
The community and culture we live in and serve have evolved. We are proud to announce that our agency will now officially be known as Willow Domestic Violence Center to better reflect our mission in today’s world.
We believe that everyone has the right to be safe and recognize that domestic violence is not just physical.
Why Willow? The willow tree is sheltering and a beacon of hope. A willow can grow from a single, broken branch and it will prevail with grace under all kinds of pressure. Its branches can be woven together to create something entirely new and incredibly durable. For us, a willow represents a vast, underlying strength that comes from within and radiates out.
The Agency provides a full continuum of services, including crisis counseling, support and prevention/education. Services for men and women, transgender knowledgeable and welcoming, 24 hour hotline.
