posted Jan 31, 2013, 7:57 AM by Kristin Snell

Women of Worth assists families in crisis and domestic violence victims to increase self-reliance and improve quality of life by helping them rebuild their lives with dignity, hope and safety.  Women of Worth provides no-cost services, including short-term assistance for families in crisis, and long-term transitional programs to enable women to safely escape domestic violence. 

Women of Worth was founded to restore the lives of abused women and children in Nevada and Placer counties.  Services are designed with this question in mind: “What would help them escape and start a safe, new life?”  Women of Worth assists victims of domestic violence and families in crisis with the following services:
  • Transitional housing
  • Emergency shelter assistance
  • Counseling and support groups
  • Furniture and personal items
  • Educational and career assistance
  • Life skills training and mentoring
Women of Worth was founded by Sandy Schmidt, a domestic violence survivor whose personal passion is to help abused women and children escape domestic violence.  Women of Worth is supported almost entirely by the generosity of our great community.  You can help by offering volunteer time, material donations and financial assistance, both of which are tax deductible.  Our services are provided free of charge to our clients, and results in families that live in safety, renewed hopefulness — free from the threat of violence and abuse.  You can make a difference in the lives of women and children escaping abuse.
