Over the past year, Women Against Abuse, along with our sister domestic violence agencies, has worked closely with health and human services and law enforcement providers, including both non-profit partners and city agencies, to develop a five-year strategic plan for launching a coordinated community response to the urgent public health epidemic of domestic violence in Philadelphia.
Women Against Abuse's Education and Training team was honored last month by the Pennsylvania State Association for Health, Physical Education, Recreation, and Dance (PSAHPERD). The team, led by Director of Education and Training Azucena Ugarte, was recognized at the organization's Awards Luncheon on November 21 with an award for Community Teachers of the Year in the Health category.
With more clients than ever before, we need the community's help in ensuring a bright and happy holiday for women and children impacted by domestic violence. Please get involved now! The gift drive ends December 16th.
Get your tickets early for our annual fundraising event and food competition! It's a terrific night for a great cause...and we're expecting a sell out, so don't delay!
