Deep Roots, Bright Future

This year’s Annual Report provides a snapshot of the more than 6,800 survivors Willow Center reached in the past year and brief highlights of several initiatives underway as we set the course for the future. At this critical moment in our history, we recommit ourselves to ending dating and domestic violence. There is still so much to be done.

Thank you for standing with Willow. Here’s to the bright future ahead – together.

Why Willow?

The willow tree is sheltering and a beacon of hope. A willow tree will prevail with grace under all kinds of pressure. Its branches can be woven together to create something entirely new and incredibly durable. For us, a willow represents a vast, underlying strength that comes from within and radiates out. Learn more.
