International Women's House

The International Women's House is the only shelter in the nation to serve battered women and children of all nationalities, supported by a multi-cultural, multi-lingual staff. In 1995, JLD in collaboration with a coalition of refugee and mainstream social service providers, founded IWH.

In 1999, with the full support and encouragement of the League, IWH became autonomous and attained its own 501(c)3 status. JLD remains actively involved in IWH via the IWH Committee as well as the number of actives and sustainers that serve on IWH's Board and Capital Campaign committees.
