Thank you for donating to AVANZAR!
(formerly The Women's Center)
We have re-branded!
Through our 43-year evolution and enriched Social Justice Services in Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault and Human Trafficking, Displaced Homemakers, Fatherhood, Early Childhood Education and Dismantling Racism, we have become far more than a shelter. What started as a 24-hour rape and sexual assault counseling hotline has grown into an agency with over 60 staff, major programs, and a multitude of services.
AVANZAR, which means “to move forward” in Spanish, captures our commitment to serve the broadest community as we work to engage and empower individuals of all races, ethnicities, national origins, ages, gender identities, socioeconomic statuses, religious, sexual orientations, and physical and intellectual abilities. Our vision is to strive to be the premier Social Justice Agency focused on equitable inclusiveness. Our mission remains the same...To empower individuals and families by working to secure their physical safety, emotional well-being, individual freedom, and economic equality.
As a non-profit organization, AVANZAR relies heavily on the financial and volunteer support of our community. We couldn’t do it without you!
Thank you for your generous donation.
