The Women’s Center, Inc. in Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania is a non-profit organization that was formed in 1974 and incorporated in 1976. One of the first programs in Pennsylvania to provide free support services to victims of domestic violence, sexual assault and incest, the Women’s Center serves the residents of Columbia and Montour counties.

The philosophy of the Women’s Center is that all individuals are equal to one another and have the right to live in a nonviolent environment. Women’s Center staff, volunteers, and the board of directors endeavor to promote an atmosphere where people can strive for equality and respect and gain confidence in their abilities. By receiving peer encouragement and practical support, victims of domestic violence and sexual assault can work toward regaining a positive self-image. It is our belief that this positive self-image will give any person who has been battered or sexually assaulted the strength necessary to handle their problems and to work toward a solution.
