AIA Houston Women in Architecture committee will be hosting a Happy Hour and Donation Drive benefiting the Houston Area Women’s Center on October 16, 2019 at Decatur Bar & Pop-Up Factory from 6:00 P - 8:00 P in recognition of Domestic Violence Awareness Month.

Since 1977, the Houston Area Women’s Center has worked relentlessly to help survivors affected by domestic and sexual violence build lives free from the effects of violence.

Given our humble beginnings – we started with nine active volunteers answering donated phones – we are proud of how we have grown. Today, we have 115 paid staff, a counseling and administrative building, a residential shelter for 120 women and children, a state-of-the-art hotline call center and over 1,000 active volunteers. Their mission is to end domestic and sexual violence and supports all in building safe and healthy lives through advocacy, counseling, education, shelter and support services.
