forms of domestic abuse. 


A community living


It is the commitment of the WHC to support the right of an individual not to be battered or abused and to strive for the personal growth and development of all victims. The program recognizes abuse as taking multiple forms that include physical abuse as well as psychological, sexual, social, economic abuse, and stalking. Victims are assisted via provision of options, access to community resources, educative and supportive services, counseling, advocacy efforts, and emergency shelter.

Services include: a 24 hour hotline in each county of service that is linked to an incoming toll free line; information and referral; individual and group counseling for adults and children; trauma-informed yoga, legal, medical and systems advocacy; court preparation and accompaniment; community education; violence prevention programs within area schools; victim transportation; and emergency shelter.

All services are provided free of charge and all contacts are confidential.

The Help Center has been at the forefront of assisting area victims and their children through the crisis of domestic violence for over 40 years, and strive to always do more.
