Safety is paramount. Safety is a right. Safety sometimes takes support to achieve. That is where The Center for Women and Families comes in.

For decades The Center for Women and Families has provided trauma-informed services for individuals and families impacted by intimate partner violence and sexual assault. From emergency shelter to legal advocacy, group counseling, and more, they step alongside women and children living in unsafe situations and help them to move forward step by step into a secure future full of healing and potential.

On this week’s episode of the #502LeaderSeries Podcast we sat down with some of The Center for Women and Families team, including CEO Elizabeth Wessels-Martin to learn about their full array of services and how you can partner with them to help Louisville be a safer place for everyone to call home.

If you are in an unsafe situation or need to talk, The Center is open 24/7 and someone is always available to answer you call at (844) 237-2331. If you feel moved to volunteer, CLICK HERE for more information! You can also get to know them more online at and follow them on the socials (Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram) @thecenteronline!
