Northwest Arkansas Women's Shelter
Last updated on February 17, 2014


Northwest Arkansas Women's Shelter is committed to serving victims of domestic violence and sexual assault and empowering them to build lives free of 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 assist any woman who meets the criteria for emergency intervention and assistance due to domestic violence or sexual assault.

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. Since then we’ve grown and been able to serve around 1,000 victims each year.
