We provide vital mental health services for women regardless of ability to pay.


The mission of The Women’s Initiative is to provide women with effective counseling, social support and education so they can transform life challenges into positive change and growth.


All women in our community will have access to innovative, effective, evidence-based mental health care.


We believe every woman has an innate capacity for healing that, once uncovered and directed, results in better mental and physical health. We believe it is critical to address each woman’s unique emotional, physical and spiritual needs.
