The objective of WSC is to create a safe and confidential environment for healing and recovery — a place where they receive support, empathy, and the knowledge that they are not alone in their struggles. Women are provided with practical learning about domestic violence, as well as counseling that bolsters self-esteem and confidence. The Center offers a hotline, walk-in services, legal and psychological counseling, representation in court trials for criminal, divorce or child custody, training sessions, assistance in dealing with police and social services departments and also assisting with setting up a new life for the survivor and her children. The Center also runs the only domestic violence specialized shelter in the country which is in an undisclosed location for safety reasons.
