Women’s Support Services, Inc., (WSS), is a non-profit domestic violence agency serving Northwest
Connecticut and the surrounding communities in New York and Massachusetts. The mission of WSS is to
create a community free of domestic violence and abuse through intervention, prevention, and

safety planning • Support groups • Legal advocacy, transportation, resources • Training for local professionals and community groups • Violence Prevention Education Program for pre-school through grade 12

Domestic violence knows no boundaries.
It affects people from all socioeconomic, cultural, educational, and religious backgrounds.
It is experienced across sexual identities and gender expressions, in same-sex, opposite-sex and asexual relationships.
It occurs in every age group, from teens to the elderly.
Children are also affected, even if they are not abused or do not witness abuse directly.

- ALL WSS SERVICES ARE CONFIDENTIAL AND FREE OF CHARGE -

WSS works with women, men, teens and children.

WSS supports those who choose to remain in relationships, and those who choose to leave.
