Our History

Women Together/ Mujeres Unidas is a non-profit agency founded in 1978 to provide shelter and support services to battered women and their children through funding provided by Texas Legislature HB 1075.

Since 1978, the agency has incorporated crisis intervention and support services for victims of domestic violence and sexual violence.

In 1990, the agency developed a program to provide group counseling for abusive males.

The agency is governed by an (11) member board of director from diverse backgrounds who are representatives of the community.

 

Our Philosophy

The mission of Women together is based on the belief of dignity and uniqueness of every person.

We believe in self-determination for all women and the right of all persons to live without fear, abuse, or oppression.

We believe that services should be available to battered or sexually abused individuals/ persons without regard to race, gender, national origin, age, physical disability, religion, or sexual orientation.

Finally, we believe that abusive people must be held legally and morally accountable for their actions.
