Areas We Serve

domestic-violence-awareness.jpgThe Battered Women’s Safe Territory was established in the state of New York and primarily services the (1) New York City Metropolitan area and (2) the Greater Waterbury area in the state of Connecticut.  BW STOP has been serving the communitites of The Bronx, NY and Waterbury, CT since its inception in 2004.

BW STOP has made great strides in accomplishing its mission.  BWSTOP has successfully brought domestic violence awareness to both communities of Greater Waterbury, CT and The Bronx, NY with various programs and services.

Our Mission Is Needed

Domestic violence directly or indirectly impacts other areas of the community ranging from increased law enforcement costs, high truancy rates in the educational systems, unnecessary homelessness, and increased tax dollars. All of these and other contributing factors underscore the need for creative ways to address this challenge of domestic violence and is of paramount importance.

BWSTOP is in the final stages of preparing to open and operate its own temporary residential housing program, which will greatly benefit the client base it serves.  This move will greatly benefit the clients by reducing paperwork and increasing lead-times for temporary residences.
