We know it's important your donation is used effectively. The Houston Area Women’s Center takes pride in being responsible stewards of the funds entrusted to us.

Your support helps fund a 120-bed shelter, 24/7 crisis response hotlines, counseling and year-round trauma-informed education and prevention programs. HAWC’s breadth of services offer hope and healing to thousands of survivors and their families.

Your Dollars Matter

In just 2020 alone:

    • Hotline: We averaged more than 125 calls a day, totaling nearly 46,000 calls
    • Emergency Shelter: We safely housed nearly 1,200 women, children and families.
    • Outreach: Our teams of violence prevention educators and counselors trained more than 13,000 youth and community members.
    • Counseling: We counseled more than 4,300 women, men and children.
    • HAWC Engagement: Our corps of more than 1,100 registered volunteers and 22,000 social media followers remained active, involved and connected to our mission.

The first day I came to counseling, they told me I was not alone. Now I really believe it. We need people like you. People who make a difference.

Invest in a Change.

We can’t fulfill our vision of a community free of domestic violence and sexual assault on our own. Your generosity and support are critical – and your gift to HAWC can truly transform a life.


Annual and Financial Reports

As a non-profit organization, we share our financials, so you can have confidence in how we are using gifts from our generous donors and supporters. We publish an annual impact report, audited financial statements and our federal tax returns each year.

The Houston Area Women’s Center Annual Impact Report highlights achievements and contributions of staff, volunteers, supporters and donors helping provide advocacy, counseling, shelter and resources to survivors of domestic and sexual violence. It also provides key financial and statistical data.

We encourage you to review our audited financial information and evaluations by independent organizations.
