Who We Are

The Women's Help Center (WHC) is a non-profit, human service agency contracted by the state Department of Public Welfare to provide services to adult victims of domestic violence and their dependent children throughout Cambria and Somerset Counties.  Established 35 years ago, the WHC is one of the pioneers of the domestic violence movement in Pennsylvania.  The Counseling Center was established in 1979, the Emergency Shelter component was implemented in 1981 and a Satellite Office was opened in Somerset in 1985.

What We Do

It is the commitment of the WHC to support the right of an individual not to be battered or abused and to strive for the personal growth and development of all victims.  The program recognizes abuse as taking multiple forms that include physical abuse as well as psychological, sexual, social, economic abuse, and stalking.   Victims are assisted via provision of options, access to community resources, educative and supportive services, counseling, advocacy efforts, and emergency shelter.


Services include: a 24 hour hotline in each county of service that is linked to an incoming toll free line; information and referral; individual and group counseling for adults and children; legal, medical and systems advocacy; court preparation and accompaniment; parenting effectiveness sessions; community education; violence prevention programs within area schools; drug and alcohol intervention prevention; victim transportation; and emergency shelter.  All services are provided free of charge and all contacts are confidential.
