It's that time of year again! Wine enthusiasts, and all those who want to sip to support a great cause, can join Women of Wine Charities for its 2015 Grand Tasting on September 21 at the Wynden. This annual event is so much fun, and proceeds benefit our mission. We hope you will join us!

Everyone who attends the Grand Tasting will enjoy an assortment of highly-rated wines paired with bites from some of Houston’s most popular chefs. The evening will also include a live and silent auction and much more.

Great news! If you're called for jury duty in a Harris County court, you now have the option to donate your jury fee to the Houston Area Women's Center.  Just look for our name on their form.  The money we receive helps fund our programs like Children's Court Services, which provides resources and support to children who have to testify in court -- either as victims or witnesses of violence.  

So, the next time you receive a jury summons, please consider saying "yes" and donating your fee to help support survivors!

Our 2015 Back to School Project ended on a high note last week when we had a surprise visit from Houston area Marshalls employees! The stores donated the backpacks, and employees filled them all up with supplies. This wonderful photo was the icing on the cake. We're so grateful, and our child clients will be so excited!

Want to support our mission? There are so many ways to get involved, and all will help the clients we serve -- women and men, adults and children -- build lives that are free from violence. Our services are confidential, and our hotlines are available 24-hours a day, every day of the year.

And everything we offer is free ... thanks to you!
