What We Do

The WCA is the go-to place for anyone in the Omaha area who is experiencing domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking or human trafficking. Our free, high-quality services address our clients’ safety needs both immediate and long-term, and help them to grow into independence over time. The WCA assures that no victim will ever walk alone in their journey. We also provide education for the community at large, to raise awareness about issues of power and control, to strengthen support for victims and to make the Omaha metro a safer place for all.

Interesting Info

  • In the U.S., 1 in 3 women and 1 in 4 men have experienced rape, physical violence and/or stalking by an intimate partner
  • We want to eliminate channels of power and control so that all people can lead safe, healthy, self-determined lives.
