Women Aware

Making a ‘Point’ to help county residents in need

Patricia Teffenhart, assistant executive director for Women Aware, which was among the organizations on hand at the Woodbridge site, said domestic violence can be a cause of homelessness.

“We feel it is absolutely the right thing to be here providing our services,” she said. “We provide a number of services, from finding shelter for those in an abusive relationship, legal advice, therapy and more, so that people go from either being homeless or at risk of being homeless to them being about to land on their feet.”
