Women’s Center & Shelter of Greater Pittsburgh began its mission to create a safe environment for women almost 45 years ago, using a small storefont space as a simple meeting place for women in the Pittsburgh area. Founders Ellen Berliner and Anne Steytler never planned to start a movement, but when faced with the staggering truth about the number of women who suffer domestic violence, they knew that they could not sit idly by.

Today, Women’s Center & Shelter offers support and aid to more than 7,500 individuals each year, and continues to remain one of the leading regional programs for survivors of intimate partner violence.
