In Northern Kentucky, Women’s Crisis Center’s roots run deep. Established in 1976 as the Rape Crisis Center of Northern Kentucky, Women’s Crisis Center (WCC) was formed to provide a 24-hour crisis hotline, crisis intervention, advocacy, community education, counseling and support services for rape survivors. In 1979, our name changed to reflect additional services being provided to battered women and their children. In WCC’s early days, women and children were sheltered in private homes within the community.
WCC is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit social service agency committed to leading our community in the social change needed to end domestic violence, rape, and sexual abuse. Services are provided confidentially and at no cost to our clients, supported either in part or as a whole by state funding.
