The Center for Women and Families strives to offer services in ways that foster safety, choice, trustworthiness, collaboration, and empowerment. We believe in trauma-informed care. This means we acknowledge that everyone responds to and heals from trauma in different ways, so we provide our services in a way that promotes healing.
Clients of The Center have the right to privacy and confidentiality, the right to stop or refuse services at any time, the right to be treated with respect and dignity, and the right to appropriate services free from discrimination.
Our policy states: No person shall, on the grounds of race, color, religion, gender, national origin, age, familial status, gender identity, sexual orientation, immigration status, language proficiency, disability, veteran status, political affiliation or belief, be discriminated against or denied services as a participant in any Center program. This includes having reasonable accommodations to eliminate any barrier facing a person to ensure against discrimination and to foster equal opportunity for services, including interpretation services for individuals with limited English proficiency or who are deaf or hard of hearing.
