Women’s Center

Women Overcoming Violence

The GLIDE WELLS FARGO WOMEN’S CENTER walks with women on their road to recovery from violence, oppression, and isolation. Our Women’s Center is a safe and supportive community that empowers survivors of domestic and intimate partner violence including stalking, to heal and thrive. Though changing core beliefs and core values, we help you create long-term behavior change. If you are a woman who has slipped through the social safety net, is living on the street or in an unstable housing situation, we’re here for you.

Change is Possible

We are a domestic violence program with a unique approach to transforming lives.  We provide holistic healing; addressing emotions, mind, body, spirit and relationships. Our services are designed to help women who face Intimate partner violence, and associated concerns such as co-dependence, substance abuse, mental health issues and homelessness.  We move survivors of violence from crisis to confidence, from hopelessness to long term change.

Moving Beyond Survival

Changing core beliefs and values, and producing long-term behavior change. A 9-week, closed support group for women who have consistently participated in the drop-in support groups and are ready to take a closer look at personal histories to get to the root of risky behavioral patterns. This group meets 1 day a week for 2 hours over the course of 9 weeks.

Domestic violence can be defined as a pattern of behavior in any relationship that is used to gain or maintain power and control over an intimate partner.   Abuse is emotional, verbal, sexual, financial, stalking, physical or psychological actions or threats of actions that influence another person.  This includes any behaviors that frighten, intimidate, terrorize, manipulate, hurt, humiliate, blame, injure or wound someone.  Domestic violence can happen to anyone regardless of race, age, sexual orientation, income level, religion or gender.  Intimate partner violence can happen with couple’s who are married, living together or who are dating.   Additionally, transgender’s experience violence at the same rate and are also vulnerable to the lack of social service support, from police, hospitals and shelters.
