About WIT

Empowering Women Since 1971

Women In Transition (WIT) provides empowerment counseling, referrals and advocacy to women in Philadelphia who are endangered by domestic violence and/or substance abuse.

Our programs help women make positive changes in their lives, actualize their potential, and build lives for themselves and their children that are free of violence and free from addictions to drugs and alcohol.

WIT also provides trainings, workshops, and systems advocacy in the community to help build a society that will no longer tolerate violence against women and children.


Make a difference this holiday season!

Adopt A Family 2015  identifies the women and children at WIT who are struggling to make ends meet, and matches them with a donor who can donate a gift card to a store of their choice. Donor Agreements must be signed and returned by 12/1!

On 12/13, three Ten Thousand Villages shops and WIT have teamed up for a Community Shopping Day that will benefit WIT! 15% of all purchases made between 12 PM and 5 PM will go directly to WIT. Read more here.


Call 911 if you are in immediate danger

Centrally located in Center City, Women In Transition is an early intervention and prevention agency – helping women identify the causes and prevalence of domestic or substance abuse in their lives and make long-lasting changes for themselves and their children.

All of WIT’s direct services are provided free, without regard to race, gender, age, marital, social or economic status; cultural or religious practices; sexual orientation; political beliefs; or physical abilities.
