The Women's Windows Program provides weekly art workshops to women in shelters, transitional housing, and outreach centers. The program has also been useful for teens from violent homes, as well as male survivors of domestic violence.
The Women's Windows Program provides a safe, gentle, and effective way for survivors to express and release painful feelings, and to overcome the abusive messages that they learned from their batterers. As women begin to believe in themselves, they are able to develop hope for a healthy future and take concrete steps toward building one.
AWBW actively supports partner agencies with leadership training, art supplies, personalized consultation, and 24/7 access to an online support network that includes over 400 sample art workshops, leader focus groups, and online program reporting. Program Results in 2012
