Coalitions & Collaborations

AWS strongly believes in developing meaningful partnerships in order to offer more comprehensive services and advocate effectively for the legal, cultural, and societal changes that matter to our communities. We seek to avoid the duplication of services and build a cohesive, diverse network of resources for survivors who are seeking support. By encouraging community collaboratives, we help break down the isolation and create a community response toward ending violence against women.

Together and in collaboration with other agencies, we provide case management to survivors of human trafficking both in and outside our shelter.
