Mission Statement

The mission of Women's Center & Shelter is to advance the safety and wellbeing of victims of intimate partner violence and prevent and respond to intimate partner violence through social change.

About Women's Center & Shelter of Greater Pittsburgh

As one of the first six programs for intimate partner violence survivors in the nation, Women's Center & Shelter has been a leader in the Battered Women's Movement since 1974. We are not just a women's shelter, and more than just a collection of services for domestic abuse survivors. We are a team of passionate, dedicated individuals fighting for the rights of survivors everywhere.

Women's Center & Shelter truly welcomes the opportunity to serve all members of our community. We serve all domestic violence survivors, regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, religion, sexual identity, age, ability, language spoken, or any other factor. We strive to replace barriers with ever-widening circles of support and respect.
