Walnut Avenue Women's Center Expands Services

In the new state budget, the governor restored 20.4 million dollars in funding for domestic violence services, about 80% of the funds that had been redlined in 2009! The funds will be distributed to the 94 DV agencies in the state. This means that the Walnut Avenue Women’s Center is open again on Wednesdays.

Walk-in hours for domestic violence services are Monday, Tuesday, Thursday & Friday from 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m, 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. and Wednesdays from 1:00-4:00pm. Participants can also make an appointment to meet with an advocate by calling our business office at 426-3062.

Domestic Violence Services offered are: One-on-One Peer Advocacy; Legal Advocacy; Support Groups; Career Advancement Workshops; Emergency Interim Shelter; Clinical Counseling; Community Education; Internships and a  24 Hour Bilingual Crisis Hotline 1-866-2MY-ALLY (1-866-269-2559).
