For the past four years, we've been working thoughtfully and diligently to integrate Sanctuary® principles into our organization's structure and into our staff's interactions with both clients and each other.

Women Against Abuse, the Women's Law Project and Women Organized Against Rape were awarded a three year $240,000 grant from WOMEN's WAY to begin creating a coordinated community response to domestic violence in Philadelphia that will increase victim safety and prevent abuse.
On April 30, Women Against Abuse's Police Liaison, Mike Gallagher, received the Powerful Partner Award from Women's Way, which honors “trailblazers and change makers in the region and around the country” working on behalf of women and girls.
