Women’s Crisis Center in Hebron has just kicked off its “40 Years and Counting” campaign to raise awareness of domestic violence and sexual assault in the communities it serves.

For the past 40 years, Women’s Crisis Center has been here to assist people who have experienced interpersonal violence.

What began in 1975 as a dream of a few determined individuals to provide basic and dignified services to rape victims, has grown and expanded. It now includes a 24-hour emergency hotline, two domestic violence shelters, five walk-in offices, and a best practice prevention education curriculum for high schools, colleges and the communities in the 13-county Northern Kentucky area.

Women’s Crisis Center (WCC) is nonprofit social service agency committed to leading our community in the social change needed to end domestic violence, rape, and sexual abuse.  Services are provided confidentially and at no cost to clients.

Women’s Crisis Center has developed a longstanding community presence in Northern Kentucky, Maysville and Greater Cincinnati. The organization has been able to offer free 24/7 service responsiveness and survivor-centered advocacy programs because of its strong community partnerships, and outstanding support from community members.

In 2015, WCC assisted 1,490 survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault. It continues to lead local communities in the social change needed to end domestic violence, rape and sexual abuse and recognizes that everything counts when getting victims one step closer to peace.
