Domestic violence can happen to anyone regardless of race, age, sexual orientation, religion, or gender. Domestic violence affects people of all socioeconomic backgrounds and education levels. Domestic violence occurs in both opposite-sex and same-sex relationships and can happen to intimate partners who are married, living together, or dating.

If you are being abused, REMEMBER –
You are not alone
It’s not your fault
Help is available

If you or someone you know is in an abusive relationship and needs help or would like to speak with someone about domestic violence, confidential help is available 24 hours a day. Our staff is prepared to assist callers in preparing safety plans, respond to general questions about domestic violence, provide referrals, and share additional information about our programs and services.

Our help line can be called with both an ordinary telephone or a teletype device (TTY). It is accessible to people with speech and hearing disabilities Monday – Friday between the hours of 8:00 am and 5:00 pm.

From our start in 1977 as a grassroots effort to provide assistance and support for women victims of domestic violence, Women Helping Women has steadily grown to become an established non-profit agency that provides a comprehensive continuum of services to over 600 women, men, and children each year.  Throughout our 36-year history, Women Helping Women has expanded our organizational capacity to support a variety of programs, projects and activities focused on direct intervention, advocacy, education and prevention.  Today, Women Helping Women supports a staff of over 20 dedicated professionals, with offices in West Maui and on Lanai.

During fiscal year 2011-12, WHW provided shelter to 127 women and 98 children (a total of 9,339 bed days), and provided 13 domestic violence presentations in the community. During this same time period, 831 crisis calls and 7,394 information calls were answered on the 24-hour domestic violence hotline.
