Houston Area Women’s Center helps individuals affected domestic and sexual violence in their efforts to move their lives forward.  Funds raised for this event will support the Center’s 24-hour hotlines, offering a lifeline to those suffering from abuse or recovering from sexual assault.  They also fund individual and group counseling sessions that help survivors move forward with their lives. They ensure that women and children escaping violent homes have a safe place to sleep, and so much more.
