Welcome to the Office for WomenFor over 35 years, the Office for Women (OFW) has worked to ensure equal rights for all women. We support women in difficult circumstances and celebrate their strengths and achievements. We advance the cause of women, support them in their choices and serve their needs.

The OFW is Westchester County’s central resource for all kinds of information concerning women and families – domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking, sexual harassment, legal issues, employment, child care, education, equal pay, financial planning, women’s health, caregiving and aging. If the Office for Women cannot answer your questions, we will direct you to someone who can.

The OFW promotes equal rights, independence, dignity and equity for Westchester County women and their families through education and research, direct and contracted services, and by influencing public policy.

We offer our services in both English and Spanish. Our counselors are available by appointment for a confidential meeting with those seeking safety from all forms of interpersonal violence.
