    More about WomenRising…

    WomenRising is an amazing local non-profit organization which has been a lifeline to women and families in need of financial assistance and emotional support {due to being victims of domestic violence} for over 100 years. On May 11, 2018, the organization celebrated 113 years of dedicated service to local families in need of a helping hand.  Many families and victims of domestic abuse living in the Hudson County region have found success while using the resources provided by the local organization.

    Since 1911, the Board of Trustees—a group primarily led by women—has been providing women and their families with access to helpful services. Some of the successful programs offered by the organization are the Domestic Violence Program, the Family Advocacy Program (FAP), and Family Support Services (FSS).

    The Domestic Violence Program as part of Women Rising has been providing victims of violence—specifically women and children—with direct access to a 24-hour hotline service {available seven days a week}. In addition to the domestic violence hotline which has been in place for over 30 years, the program has continued to offer victims counseling, assistance with legal issues like custody, access to support groups, and a series of other helpful services.

    The FAP and FSS are examples of family service programs that equip women and their at-risk children with guidance and social support. For example, the FAP serves families that are in crisis by providing them with counselors who work closely with each family member to enforce improved behavior and communication skills. FSS, on the other hand, is a short-term service that focuses on helping families and individuals create positive goals for the future.
