Transcript HOUSTON AREA WOMEN 'S CENTER OPENS A shelter providing an immediate, safe, and positive refuge for abused women and their children opened June 1 as the first priority of the Houston Area Women;s Center. There are few emergency centers of any kind in Houston and only two others accept children. The goals of the new shelter are to assist women in directing their lives better by developing their personal resources and to intervene in the cycle of children of violent homes becoming the next generation of abusers. The Women's Center also hopes toi increase community awareness and understanding of household violence and gather data on its extent and nature. The shelter now needs volunteers to aid in various processes. After completing a training program, volunteers will staff the shelter, complete necessary forms, answer questions, answer the telephone, offer child care, be an advocate for incoming women by taking them to the proper agencies, etc. Other areas in which volunteers can assist are building playgorund equipment, making repairs, and collecting linens and clothes, public relations, and f undraising. The Houston Police Department reports that at least U-0% of their calls are for domestic disturbances. Being the victim of such physical abuse is a helpless feeling. Offering a refuge is offering a choice in a seemingly impossible situation. With your help, this choice becomes a reality. Interest and a desire to help are the only prerequisites for volunteering for the shelter. In order to register as a volunteer or receive more information, call 527-0718.
