Starting  June 1st, W.O.M.A.N., Inc. will offer Evening Peer Counseling Sessions

Are you looking to connect with a domestic violence (DV) counselor? Would you like some support from people who won’t judge you or your choices? Could you use some personal care items or some assistance in connecting with community resources? Maybe you’re not looking for any of those things, but could use a laid-back? space to come drink a cup of tea and talk to someone about your DV situation?

W.O.M.A.N., Inc. is the place for you. We will advocate for you. We are here for you–and now you can make an evening appointment with one of our counselor advocates.

WHAT?

We had an amazing time last Thursday at W.O.M.A.N., Inc.’s 40th Birthday Celebration. The space was vibrantly filled with current and former W.O.M.A.N., Inc. staff, board, volunteers, program participants and community allies. Thanks to our fabulous and generous supporters, we raised over $9,000 for our programs serving domestic violence survivors, their friends and family. Folks enjoyed mingling, food, speakers, live music and got to take home some sweet raffle/auction items. We are so grateful for your support, without which, we could not do what we do!

Hey friends! We are excited to share we’ve been invited to table at Matt and Kim’s April 3rd Concert at the Warfield.

REVOLT. SHE SAID. REVOLT AGAIN.

Mark your calendars! The folks at Crowded Fire Theater are having Jill, our Executive Director, as a special guest after their March 14th performance of REVOLT. SHE SAID. REVOLT AGAIN.

Revolt

Many thanks to their team for the kind invitation & generosity. We appreciate your support!

Show Description: 

For all the #NastyWomen (or anyone who can say #MeToo) looking for #GirlsLikeUs, wondering why #NeverthelessShePersisted, who want to #AskHerMore: Revolt.

Exhilaratingly wild, fearless and playful, REVOLT. SHE SAID. REVOLT AGAIN. is feminism at its messy edge. Alice Birch morphs language and explodes boundaries in this darkly comic manifesto exploring the myriad ways women are styled, shaped, and confined to fit society’s expectations, asking us: What happens when we rebel?

We are pleased to announce the formation of the San Francisco Victim Advocacy Coalition (SFVAC)

We are pleased to announce the formation of the San Francisco Victim Advocacy Coalition (SFVAC) with the Justice & Diversity Center of the Bar Association of San Francisco, the Cooperative Restraining Order Clinic (CROC)San Francisco Women Against Rape (SFWAR) and W.O.M.A.N., Inc.
Creating a ‘no wrong door approach’, the San Francisco Victim Advocacy Coalition has come together to offer a holistic approach to helping survivors of sexual abuse and assault, domestic violence and stalking.

Coming to any one of the SF VAC organizations connects survivors with compassionate and confidential support. This includes legal representation in criminal and civil cases, as well as legal advice and information for survivors. In addition, this holistic program answers to issues commonly related to surviving sexual assault, domestic violence and stalking. The coalition is able to assist our clients with issues stemming from abuse, such as housing rights, eviction defense, spousal support, public benefits, income security, debt, child custody, medical needs, immigration, etc., connecting survivors with the best suited program at the Justice & Diversity Center.

In addition to holistic legal services, the coalition offers a spectrum of emotional support to survivors engaged in legal services at JDC or CROC. Survivor advocates at W.O.M.A.N., Inc and SFWAR accompany survivors to court to provide emotional support. Ongoing counseling services, advocacy, and other supportive services are provided in a collaborative effort to fully answer to the needs of survivors.

As a part of this collaborative effort, CROC will also provide legal advice, information, and representation in Title IX sexual assault, stalking and domestic violence matters. Working closely with UCSF, CROC provides outreach, ensuring students and faculty are aware of these services.

For more information please call the W.O.M.A.N., Inc. 24/7 Support Line at (415)864-4722.
