This year marks the 40th Anniversary for Fort Bend Women's Center, serving survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault.  Over the past 40 years, more than 50,000 survivors and their children have been served. This couldn’t have been possible without dedicated STARS (volunteers) like you.  To celebrate 40 years, your FBWC STARS Auxiliary has pledged to raise $40,000 for the women and children  through a crowdfunding campaign we’re calling 40 for 40,  and we need a team of 40 STARS to each raise just $1,000 by emailing their address book.

It’s SUPER EASY to get started!  Just click JOIN, located just below the STARS logo at the top of the page and then set up your donation page to share. To share with your address book, click the purple  ‘Share’ button  at the bottom of the page,  copy  the  url  link,  and paste into your email. That’s it!  If 40 STARS set up a page and raise just $1,000 each, that’s $40,000 to serve more survivors in need!

Make it personal.  Share your story, the Women’s Center story, your experiences, your passion, even share pictures.  SHARE EVERYTHING YOU LOVE ABOUT YOUR VOLUNTEERING AND SHARE EVERYWHERE.

Please JOIN the STARS Auxiliary 40 for 40 team today.  This campaign begins March 1 and ends May 10, so get your page set up now and spread the word, STARS!  The women and children are counting on us.  Can we count on you?

Need help? Have questions? Please feel free to reach out to 40 for 40 STARS Campaign Manager, Della Leonard,  at

Thank you so much for your dedication and passion. Go STARS!

Our Mission:

The mission of the Fort Bend Women’s Center is to assist survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault and their children to achieve safety and self-sufficiency, while striving to prevent violence against women.

Fort Bend Women’s Center website:

STARS is the Volunteer Auxiliary of Fort Bend Women’s Center (FBWC), a United Way Agency.

If you are a volunteer then you are a STAR!

The STARS Auxiliary is a dedicated group of volunteers who serve as a fundraising and supportive services arm and volunteer base for FBWC.

STARS is welcoming to anyone who has passion for the cause of FBWC, no matter your age, gender or background. These differences help to empower one another through teamwork and ultimately change lives and bring healing and hope to survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault and their children.

Since its founding in 2003, STARS has helped raise over $1 Million for the Fort Bend Women’s Center. Some of its acts of caring include;

· Purchasing and building a covered playground for the Emergency Shelter.

· Purchasing two agency vans for transportation for our survivors.

· Hosting holiday parties for the women and children at the Emergency Shelter.

· Creating and executing new and exciting activities/events to raise money for FBWC.
