The Women’s Center, Inc. is a private, nonprofit, tax-exempt organization that was formed in 1974 and incorporated in January of 1976. The agency was founded by local volunteers concerned by the prevalence of domestic and sexual violence in the community and the lack of services available to assist victims. The Organization is one of the first programs in Pennsylvania to provide free support services to victims of domestic and sexual violence. The Women’s Center, Inc. serves Columbia and Montour County. Throughout its history, the organization has evolved to meet the needs of victims in an ever-changing environment.


The Women’s Center strives to treat all individuals equally and acknowledge diversity while fostering a socially just community free from violence.


The Women’s Center, Inc. of Columbia/Montour provides direct services for all victims & survivors of domestic violence and sexual abuse, education & prevention activities, advocacy, and leadership in partnership with the community in their efforts aimed at eradicating domestic violence and sexual assault both individually and systemically.


TWC has a set of values that guide the culture of the organization, aid in achieving a common understanding of how the organization works with survivors, the community, and each other. Those values are: Empowerment & Autonomy, Diversity, Equity & Inclusion, Social Justice, Community Collaboration, Dignity and Self-worth, Respect, and Trauma Informed & Culturally Responsive.

We believe all people can embrace who they are,
