A Word From Our Executive Director
For the past 40 years, corporate partners like you have helped HAWC raise awareness about domestic abuse and provide free and confidential services to survivors on the North Shore.
As we commit to creating a truly safe and healthy future for all, we know that wellness is interconnected: by helping someone in need, helpers increase their own well-being; by promoting civic engagement for employees, employers benefit from a staff that is enriched and fulfilled. By coming together to end violence and oppression, the entire community will thrive.
This year, we are launching an Annual Corporate Partnership program to make it easy and efficient for you to partner with HAWC. We offer streamlined opportunities for you to engage in a one-time annual commitment that both increases your impact and offers dynamic engagement opportunities throughout the year.

How your partnership supports the community
