Organization Details:

Northwest Arkansas Women's Shelter
Last updated on January 27, 2015


The Northwest Arkansas Women's Shelter is committed to empowering families to build lives free from domestic and sexual violence.

The Northwest Arkansas Women’s Shelter (NWAWS) provides free emergency shelter, food, and clothing to victims of domestic violence and/or sexual assault. We also provide a free 24-hour crisis phone line and services to clients. We also offer court advocacy, Spanish bilingual services, children’s advocacy and programming, community education, support groups, counseling, and a volunteer program.

Domestic violence does not discriminate; therefore, our clients are from across all demographics in terms of age, race, socioeconomic status, and educational background. We serve men, women and children and will never turn anyone away that qualifies for our services.

Until May 1, 2009 NWAWS was known as the Benton County Women’s Shelter. The shelter began as a task force of local concerned citizens in 1988, and the first shelter was acquired in 1989. The need for our services continues to grow. In 2014, we provided safe shelter to 546 individuals.
