Bringing Communities Together to End Sexual Violence

WOAR is a non-profit organization in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania whose mission is to eliminate all forms of sexual violence through specialized treatment services, comprehensive prevention education programs, and advocacy for the rights of victims of sexual assault.

Founded in 1971 and incorporated in 1973 WOAR is Philadelphia’s only rape crisis center and one of the first in the nation. Over the years the organization has grown from a group of volunteers working in a small room of a hospital to an organization that touches individuals across the city.

Currently WOAR’s services include:

  • Counseling Department.
  • Education Department.
  • Outreach Department.
  • Volunteer & Internship Program.
