We envision a future where violence and abuse are not tolerated in the communities we serve.
We provide education, violence prevention services and crisis intervention to victims of family violence, dating violence, sexual assault and child abuse.
In 2019, We Served:
According to the National Network to End Domestic Violence the leading cause of homelessness for women and children is domestic violence and we are seeing that right here in Central Texas. Many victims face homelessness when they flee their abusers and are often unable to find safe, affordable housing. We’re doing something about that. Learn More
We’re hiring! The Hays-Caldwell Women’s Center in San Marcos, Texas, seeks a substitute Shelter Advocate to answer the hotline as well as provide comprehensive services to shelter residents primarily on weekends and holidays at HCWC’s McCoy Family Violence Shelter. Learn More
A project of HCWC, Stop the Hurt is our educational website dedicated to giving resources to parents and teens on helping victims of dating violence. We created it with the intent of being an online advocate for those who want to help the ones they love and don’t know where to start. Visit the Site!
HCWC offers community education and informational presentations on issues related to sexual abuse, child abuse, family violence, HCWC services, ways to get involved and more. Presentations can be tailored to your needs. We travel throughout Hays and Caldwell Counties to promote awareness and prevention education. Learn More
