The Mission of Every Woman’s Place is to improve and enhance the lives of women, youth, children and families in crisis in our community by providing and advocating for services which lead to their safety, their emotional and economic self-sufficiency, their productivity, and their ability to participate fully in our society.
The name Every Woman’s Place was chosen by our original incorporators to reflect our goal to serve every woman, youth or child who requests our services. If we are to do that effectively, it is our strong belief that our staff and volunteers must be representative of and sensitive to every youth, woman and her children. The agency subscribes and adheres to a supportive philosophy of self-determination and empowerment. Individuals often entrust to us information about their very private affairs. Therefore, they will be treated with respect, with regard for their dignity, and with absolute confidentiality for their privacy. The role of the agency is to assist service participants in discovering and researching their options and to support the participant’s choice of those options. The agency will pursue and/or provide those opportunities within the community that lead to participant’s safety, self-sufficiency, productivity, and meaningful participation in their communities. In addition, the agency will provide a voice in public forums for those women, youth and children that are unable to speak freely and without fear, advocating for changes in our society that better the plight of women, youth, and children in crisis.
