24-Hour Crisis Hotline


About Us

About Us

The Montgomery County Women’s Center has been committed for many years to providing a 24-hour hotline, safe shelter, crisis intervention, counseling, advocacy and legal services to survivors of family violence, sexual assault and stalking.

Our agency was incorporated as the Montgomery County Rape Crisis Coalition in 1982. As the goals of the agency expanded, the name was changed in 1986 to the Montgomery County Women’s Center (the “Women’s Center”). We have been serving Montgomery County and surrounding counties for over 30 years.

MCWC provides services to clients in the following primary program areas:

  • Residential Programs including Emergency Shelter and Transitional Housing
  • Community and School-based Educational Outreach Programs
  • Legal Services
  • Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Advocacy
  • Individual Counseling and Support Groups
  • Walk-ins are welcome for crisis intervention and advocacy at our locations in Conroe or The Woodlands, Monday – Friday, 8:00 am to 5:00 pm

Our shelter has been providing a safe emergency refuge for abused women and children for over 30 years.  The shelter can house up to 75 women and children each night.

Our agency also offers a 24-hour crisis hotline.

All of our services are provided at no cost with the exception of income-based rent for transitional housing. Reaching Pines, a 24-unit apartment facility, offers qualifying women a minimal rent, as well as counseling and advocacy, for up to 24 months.

The Women’s Center provides direct services to clients who are of many diverse backgrounds, and we do not discriminate against any person on the basis of gender, age, race, religion, national origin, cultural background, disability or sexual orientation.

Our mission is to lead the effort in preventing domestic violence and sexual assault through crisis intervention, assistance, advocacy, empowerment and social change.
