Women Aware is a private, non-profit agency that provides services to victims of domestic violence and their children. Now in our 30th year of operation, we have established ourselves as a highly regarded and dependable provider agency within the Middlesex County social service system. As the only comprehensive agency for victims of domestic violence, we provide unduplicated services to the community. Our mission is to end abuse for all people...women, men and children.
