Compass Center for Women and Families offers services to adults and children who are experiencing emotional, physical or sexual abuse in their personal relationships. We also work with individuals who need help with a transition in their lives. We work with people on an individual basis to determine their options. Domestic violence crisis services are free and available in English and Spanish. Many of our financial, career, legal, and adolescent programs are free, and those with fees are available on a sliding scale basis. No one is turned away due to the inability to pay. All services are confidential, and are provided to all regardless of race, class, religion, ethnic group, sexual orientation or gender identity.
Compass Center for Women and Families, created from the merger on July 1, 2012, of Family Violence Prevention Center of Orange County (founded in 2000) and The Women’s Center (founded in 1979), helps individuals and families prevent and end domestic violence and become self-sufficient. We provide domestic violence crisis services, career and financial education, assistance with legal resources, and adolescent empowerment programs.
