The Battered Women’s Foundation is a unique organization dedicated to helping abused women and children escape the violence in their lives permanently. Our two-year program focuses on giving battered women the skills and support they need to become self-supporting members of society. Since 1995 the BWF Foundation’s assistance with education, counseling, transportation and daily living needs has helped thousands of women and kids break the cycle of violence in their families. As a small non-profit organization, we rely heavily on financial and volunteer support from the community. Your assistance in continuing our work is deeply appreciated.
