Women At Risk, International (WAR, Int’l) is a Grand Rapids-based, nonprofit organization, established to create circles of protection around at-risk women and children. Through culturally sensitive, value-added intervention projects and partnerships, we provide safe places to heal from abuse, trafficking, exploitation, and more. Our passion is to empower survivors to live and work with dignity and hope.
WAR, Int’l enables the creation safe places for women and children and also gives voice to their silenced cries. By educating communities about risk issues and providing individuals with practical ways to take action, we extend our reach through you.
