Women Helping Battered Women (WHBW) has evolved into the largest service provider for domestic abuse victims in Vermont, serving Chittenden County.  We believe that all adults and children have the right to live without fear of abuse – sexual, physical, emotional, or financial.

No one deserves to be abused. There are places to get help.
