"Strong women: May we know them. May we raise them. May we be them." -Author Unknown
In 1976 A Woman's Place (AWP) was a storefront, drop-in domestic violence counseling center in Sellersville, PA. The following year AWP incorporated as a private, community benefit organization. Above that storefront center was AWP’s first shelter for women seeking safety from abuse. The first woman seeking safety arrived with her two children at the tiny, one-room shelter apartment on Christmas Eve 1976.
