Why WCSC?

“Unless someone offers a friendly smile, a helping hand, a caring word, a listening ear, somebody, somewhere loses the courage to live.”–Unknown

Before WCSC began, there was no place on St. Croix for survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault to get help focused on the unique challenges they face. Our work began with volunteers offering support without judgment to rape victims in crisis. The volunteer victim advocate program expanded to provide for victims of domestic violence in need of crisis intervention and safe emergency housing.

The need for a safe space to offer a range of supportive programs and services to victims and survivors helped shape the Women’s Coalition of St. Croix.

The Importance of Our Mission

We are dedicated to supporting and empowering people impacted by violence. The needs of the thousands of women, children and men who are victims and survivors continue to shape our mission and what we do. Underlying factors that keep the number of incidents growing, including poverty, sexism and racism, affect survivors, families, everyone in our community.

Support without judgment and opportunities for hope are available, regardless of ethnic identity, gender identity, religion, sexual orientation or age:
