San Diego regional partnerships between organizations, churches, direct service providers, law enforcement and government agencies is strong, and growing stronger every day.

Our direct service providers have many needs. Transitioning a victim to a survivor and reintegrating the woman back into our community takes enormous resources. Won’t you consider helping?

If you are a direct service provider and have specific needs and would like us to help get the word out to our network, please contact us at

The following direct service providers have asked for assistance in fulfilling needs for the women in their programs.
