TWC’s Unique Role

lady in redBefore The Weitzman Center existed, no other organization was working solely to raise awareness about domestic violence among affluent families. We are here to offer hope and assistance and change the definition of as domestic abuse. It is not limited to economic, educational or age boundaries. It can, and does, happen to “people like us.”

The Weitzman Center’s mission is providing support, information, and referrals to women and families struggling against the effects of upscale abuse, as well as resources and education to the helping professionals working with this group of women.

Until The Weitzman Center was incorporated in November 2001, no other organization was working solely to inform helping professionals and the public about violence in upper educated and/or upscale families. We are here to offer hope and assistance and change the face of what we, as a culture, think of as domestic abuse.
