In 1976, a small group of women came together to address a problem that is common in every community, sexual violence. This group of dedicated women started the Rape Crisis Hotline that, a year later, became Women In Need, Inc.

It is the middle of the night. The phone is ringing and you’re not sure what is going to happen next, but a voice on the other end asks, “How can I help you?”
The person on the other end listens as you explain your situation. They empathize, safety plan, and offer you options, even though it is so late into the night. They work with you to make sure you are safe and connect you with services and resources.

January 2016 was cold and blustery, but full of hope as we finally began the process of moving into the new Women In Need Advocacy Center & Anna’s House. With the continued support of the community, we have since furnished and decorated our new space to provide clients a comfortable and supportive environment.
While our 2015-2016 fiscal year has been full of changes and new opportunities, we have continued to provide essential services, assisting a total of 1,820 victims of domestic and sexual violence and their families.
