A Woman's Place, Inc. shelters and helps empower victims/survivors of domestic abuse to become safe, secure and self-reliant; and through education and collaboration, mobilizes our community to help prevent domestic violence.
A Woman's Place was founded in 1977 by a group of local men and women who recognized the need for intervention for victims of domestic violence in our area.
Initially, AWP consisted of a crisis hotline (the same number that we have today) but it was clear that the needs within our community were for a safe house. In 1978, AWP became a non-profit.
The shelter is a donation of an older home by the Greeley Urban Renewal Authority. The shelter opened its doors in 1981.
A renovation/addition completed in 2003 doubled the size of our shelter.
AWP offers universal access accommodations for clients with disabilities.
