Help support AWBW and enjoy a wonderful day filled with creativity and shopping
Since 1991 AWBW has provided creative expression as a healing tool for over 112,000 battered women and their children in crisis shelters, transitional homes, and outreach centers throughout the United States.
Initial funding from the Peter Norton Family Foundation and the Los Angeles Women's Foundation enabled AWBW to expand the Windows Project to four additional shelters, and the program has grown exponentially.
AWBW has expanded our services by 86% over the past three years within the Los Angeles area.
In celebration of its third decade providing healing and to meet its fundraising goal, AWBW is holding a number of special events this fall.
It culminates a two-year community engagement project by Abeles and AWBW.
In order to further our programs and create empowerment UBM has extended their support even further by matching monetary donations made to AWBW by UBM employees-therefore increasing awareness and helping end this silent epidemic.
