WHAT WE DO
The WCA is the go-to place for anyone in the Omaha area who is experiencing domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking, or human trafficking. Our free, high-quality services address our clients’ safety needs both immediate and long-term, and help them to grow into independence over time. The WCA assures that no victim will ever walk alone in their journey. We also provide education for the community at large, to raise awareness about issues of power and control, to strengthen support for victims, and to make the Omaha metro a safer place for all.
On average the WCA serves 150 people every single day. We do this through our advocacy, outreach, education, legal, and counseling services. One in four women and one in seven men will experience intimate partner violence in their lifetime.
We want to eliminate channels of power and control so that all people can lead safe, healthy, self-determined lives.
Judy Coffey was close to the WCA early this year and when in to chat with them and see what needs they might have. She was told most any thing so Judy went to work purchasing cloths, coats for winter, diapers and wipes for them.
