Child Enrichment at The Women's Center

Who takes care of your child when you have a doctor's appointment? How do you get to your therapy session when you have two children?

Fortunately for the many women coming to The Women's Center, there is help.  Learn more about supporting our child enrichment programs »

February is Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month

During the month of February, we ask our community to get involved, get educated and prevent the occurrence of dating violence.  To learn more about abusive vs. healthy relationships, where to get help, or how to help a friend visit the Rhode Island Coalition Against Domestic Violence's new Teen Center. When you Know More, you can Do More!
