Connections for Abused Women and their Children (CAWC) is committed to ending domestic violence. Using a self-help, empowerment approach, we provide a shelter for adults and children, counseling, advocacy, and a 24-hour hotline for people affected by domestic violence. We work for social change through education, service collaboration, and institutional advocacy.
CAWC empowers adults and children along their journey to end the cycle of violence in their homes, families, and communities. To do this, our services encompass the growing needs of domestic violence victims and survivors so we can be there with our clients every step of the way. Hospital emergency rooms are often the first point of contact for domestic violence survivors after they've been physically injured. CAWC works to ensure these patients have access to domestic violence services at the critical moment they seek care. Learn more by clicking on the video or view on YouTube.
