Description

Metropolitan Center for Women and Children (Metro) aims to to break the cycle of domestic violence and aid survivors of sexual assault through advocacy, intervention, empowerment and transformation.

Metro has a clear mission and goals focused on providing services for survivors of trauma through trauma-informed care. As an agency, Metro constantly researches best practices to seek new ways to assist survivors. Metro wants to help families regain their physical and emotional strength, because as survivors become stronger, the community is strengthened. Metro is also active in community education and outreach, operating on the premise that an informed public makes for a safer and more concerned citizenry.

Metro Center provides trauma-informed care to victims of family, domestic, and initimate partner violence and to victims of sexual assault, human trafficking, dating violence and more through the provision of various services. Metro operates a crisis line 24-hour/7 days a week, whereby trained advocates provide information, emergency counseling, resources and referrals, and more, to clients. Metro also operates several crisis centers where adult and child clients meet with trained and compassionate advocates who provide individual counseling, support groups, children's play groups, case management, referrals, education, legal assistance, and more.

In addition, Metro Center has an emergency safe shelter and two transitional housing complexes. Shelter residents are provided with the services listed above in addition to safe housing/shelter and other basic resources.
