The Battered Women’s Foundation is an independent non-profit agency operating in the state of Texas. The statistics are staggering: In the United States alone, an estimated 4 million women are physically abused by their husbands or live-in partners every year and an average of 8 women are killed by their abusers every day. Many will try to leave – often 5 to 7 times or more – but the odds are against them.
The Battered Women’s Foundation depends on both volunteer and financial support from many different individuals, churches, businesses, organizations and foundations.
The BWF Program is for victims of domestic violence. You can be referred by a case manager, police department, church, counselor, or any other agency.
