About The Women’s Center

About The Women's Center 

Founded in 1979, The Women’s Center of Tarrant County is located in Fort Worth, Texas. Its mission is to inspire and empower women, men and children to overcome violence, crisis and poverty. The Women’s Center serves over 150,000 women, men and children annually through three comprehensive programs: Rape Crisis and Victim Services, Employment Solutions, and General Counseling.

In 1983, The Women’s Center launched a child sexual abuse prevention program in response to a request from a local school district following a child sexual abuse outcry at one of their schools. Developed, researched and written by The Women’s Center, Play it Safe!® is now presented to over 140,000 children and teens throughout Tarrant County each year.

In addition to prevention and education programs, The Women’s Center provides a continuum of services for survivors and their significant others including:
• Trauma informed individual and group therapy for children and adults
• 24-hour hotline
• Crisis intervention at hospital rape exam sites
• Assistance through the criminal justice process
• Legal services for survivors
