Women Organized Against Rape (WOAR)
Founded in Philadelphia in 1971 as one of the first rape crisis centers in America, WOAR is a vital non-profit organization dedicated to addressing sexual violence in our society. We provide free, confidential, and comprehensive sexual assault counseling and advocacy services, community and professional educational programs, medical and court accompaniment, and outreach to the various communities in Philadelphia.
Our mission is:
