WOEA-R is committed to help our communities and students. WE are doing that through two collections. Frist, we have chosen to support Artemis Center in Dayton, OH. Artemis Center empowers victims of domestic violence to make decisions and choices that will establish and maintain safety for themselves and their children. By working collaboratively with other community services, Artemis Center advocates are able to coordinate needed services. Additionally, community education and advocacy programs help to create community best practice responses to victims of domestic violence.
