Women In Transition (WIT) was founded in 1971 for the purpose of empowering women to change their lives and promoting their economic independence and emotional well-being through a broad range of services. Women In Transition uniquely addresses the linkage of domestic violence and substance abuse through early intervention, prevention and recovery support services which endeavor to help women identify, early, how domestic violence and substance abuse are affecting their lives. WIT’s programs are designed to empower women to make positive changes in their lives and live free of intimate partner violence, substance abuse and poverty. WIT operates on an annual budget of $900,000, has 11 staff and 10 volunteers, and serves nearly 3,000 individuals each year.
