The mission of Brewster Center is to provide safer options and support to all victims/survivors of domestic violence through individual empowerment, advocacy, shelter, prevention, community education and social change.
Their goal is to increase safety and reduce the impact of domestic violence on victims/survivors.
Brewster Center provides all services based upon an empowerment advocacy model, which means they support every victim/survivor in developing their own solutions.
Brewster Center began in 1963 as a residential program for unwed mothers, and in 1982, began operating a domestic violence shelter for women and children. Since then, services have expanded from offering just the basic needs of food, clothing, and a bed to providing comprehensive support for victims to build a safe and independent future for themselves and their children.
