Rating: 5 stars  

Women Against Abuse helps women take care of themselves and their families when they have no other options. WAA staff and board members are committed to making a positive impact on those afflicted by abuse. So many of today's problems are due to low self-esteem, anger and feelings of being a victim. Women Against Abuse helps to break the chain of destruction and despair of families afflicted by violence.

My wife and I have been involved with Woman Against Abuse (WAA) for more than ten years in many capacities. We have found that, unfortunately, the need for support for woman and their childred who are in abusive relationships is greatly underserved by the general public. WAA, working with limited resourses, manages to make a difference in the lives of many victums of domestic violence. I know that without WAA there would be many more victums of domestic violence in our community.
