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 not only creates safe places for women and children but also gives voice to their silenced cries. By educating communities about risk issues and providing individuals with practical ways to “do something,” we extend our reach through you.

Our programs and partnerships span the globe, reaching over 40 countries, including the United States. Each month, additional projects and partnerships are formed, increasing both our gratitude and ability to offer the rescued and at-risk a “hand-up.”
