Ways to Get Involved

Your acts of kindness could potentially save the life of someone in need and provide them with services that could change their life. Onslow Women’s Center is able to provide our services free of charge because people like you show compassion and support this wonderful cause.


Speaking Engagements:
Have one of our staff arrange a speaking engagement to members of the community to spread awareness and educate them about our services. Please contact the main office at (910) 238-2941 for further information.

Support Group Facilitator:

Call our Services and Administration Office at (910)-238-2941 and ask about the qualifications to run a support group for victims and survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault. Support Groups meet once a month and there is some training that the facilitators have to go through.

Cash or in-kind donations are always accepted and appreciated at our main office or thrift store locations. Each time that you donate, you are helping save a woman and child’s life. Since we are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, we will provide you with a tax deductible receipt when you donate!

Employee Giving:
Donate through your workplace or the local United Way program! All you have to do is make known where you want your donation to go to from your paycheck.

Cell Phone Recycling:
Onslow Women’s Center partners with Shelter Alliance to raise money through cell phone and smart phone recycling. For every cell phone that you donate, Onslow Women’s Center receives the funds to support our programs and services. Learn More.
