Family friends with executive director Tammy Abernathy for over twenty-five years, the Drewett family has supported Hope Women’s Center for the last decade. Making a difference in the midst of crisis situations, the center is an important resource for women in need. Please join us in supporting their noble efforts.
Since its inception in 1984, Hope Women’s Center has changed the lives of thousands of traumatized women and teen girls in Arizona’s underserved communities.
The faith-based nonprofit was initially founded as a small crisis pregnancy center in Apache Junction, Ariz. Since then, it has grown to six centers plus a maternity home that provide care and a safe haven for women struggling with poverty, addiction, unemployment, domestic and sexual abuse, unplanned pregnancy, and human trafficking.
“Being trauma-informed, our programs are holistically designed to address each client’s physical, emotional, and spiritual needs,” says Tammy Abernethy, CEO of the organization. “We engage women in viewing themselves through the lens of true worth and value. We encourage them to process trauma and healing trigger responses. We equip them with tools for making positive choices and breaking unhealthy patterns.”
In 2021, Hope Women’s Center served 1,100 women and provided more than 54,000 services. All programs are free to participants and include everything from parenting courses, prenatal classes and mentoring to crisis counseling, job training, and grief support groups.
The charity is funded by partnerships with individuals, churches, civic groups, businesses, grants and foundations, and other community partners. For more information, click here.
