Who We Are
Women’s Support Services, Inc. (WSS) was founded in 1981 and is a Domestic Violence Agency that provides services to persons in the Northwest corner of Connecticut and nearby New York and Massachusetts who have experienced emotional, physical, psychological or sexual violence at the hands of someone they love. All WSS services are free of charge and totally confidential.
The mission of Women's Support Services is to create a community free of domestic violence and abuse through intervention, prevention and education. We offer free, confidential, client-centered services focused on safety, support advocacy and community outreach.
We believe that domestic violence and abuse is a pervasive cultural problem. In our efforts to eliminate it, we believe we must:
- increase public awareness and understanding of domestic violence and abuse
- work toward social change that empowers women
- engage all members of the community in our efforts to end violence in the home and in relationships
