Our mission is to shelter and empower victims and survivors of domestic abuse to become safe, secure and self-reliant. Through outreach, education and collaboration, we strive to mobilize our community to prevent domestic violence.
A Woman's Place was founded as a crisis line in 1977 by a group of local men and women who recognized the need for intervention for victims of domestic violence in Weld County. After incorporating as a nonprofit agency and with the donation of an older home by the Greeley Urban Renewal Authority (GURA), we opened our safe house in 1981.
In 2003, a completed rennovation and addition project doubled the size of our shelter so we would not have to turn people away due to lack of space. In 2013, the safe house was again updated thanks to funding from GURA and in 2014, they donated a second home to provide services to non-residential clients.
A Woman's Place serves individuals and families affected by domestic violence. We do not discriminate based on race, ethnicity, religion, gender, age, disability (mental or physical), sexual orientation, or socio-economic status. We oppose the use of violence and abuse as a means of gaining power and control over others and support equality in intimate relationships. We strive to advocate and support people who want to create a life free of violence, abuse and oppression. We recognize that violence affects the entire family, meaning each member requires healing and education in order to stop the cycle of abuse.
AWP is a 501(c)3 tax exempt non-profit. For agency statistics and funding information, please see our 2015 annual report.
