Women of Worth was founded over 20 years ago by Sandy Escobar-Schmidt, a survivor whose personal passion is to help abused women and children escape domestic violence.

WoW helps families in crisis, victims of domestic violence, sexual assault and human trafficking. We also offer programs to increase self-reliance and improve quality of life by helping victims rebuild their lives with dignity, hope and safety.


“Thank you for planting so many good seeds. And thank you for sharing your light and love. You are in my heart.” – Cindy B.

“As I write this, I am crying with so much thankfulness. Sobbing actually. You helped save my life. I am also eternally grateful to the women who were staying at Hetty’s Haven when I was there. They were amazingly helpful to me. Thanks to Women of Worth, I have a new life, with a job and a new home that has brought me much peace and joy. Thank you for all you do for families. And thank you for saving my life.” – Jennie D.
