Crisis counseling center holds open house
Submitted By BAWAR staff
Bay Area Women Against Rape (BAWAR), the nation's first rape crisis center was started in 1971 as a direct result of the rape of a teenage girl. In an effort to effect change in the treatment of sexual assault survivors, and to offer support and counseling to them, a small group of women, including the girl's mother, started BAWAR.
Thanks to a generous grant from the City of Fremont and the Washington Hospital Foundation, BAWAR is pleased to announce that we are now providing in-person counseling in English and Spanish in our new Fremont office. These services are free of charge and confidential for residents of Southern Alameda County.
We will be having open house on October 18 from 9 a.m. - 12 p.m. to show off our new digs and to meet and greet. This event will take place at Alameda County Hall of Justice-Fremont Branch, 39439 Paseo Padre Parkway in Fremont.
