Berks Women in Crisis is a private, non-profit domestic and sexual violence center. Begun in 1976 by a group of volunteers and rooted in the belief that all people are entitled to a life free from physical, sexual, and emotional violence. We are committed to the elimination of interpersonal and institutional violence within our community.
Berks Women in Crisis is divided into counseling, legal, housing, PeaceWorks (public education), shelter and Latina services departments which function cooperatively, so that the agency is a source of help and information for residents of Berks County. All services are free and confidential.
