While we have focused much of our attention on problems women are facing around the world, we do not want to undermine the issues women face right here in State College.

Spread the world that resources are available. The Centre County Women's Resource Center offers a safe place for women who may not know where else to turn. It offers a 24-hour hot line, counseling services, temporary and transitional housing, and children's programming in addition to other services. The center is open 365 days a year and all information is kept confidential.
No one deserves to suffer. Keep that in mind.
