Mautner Project, The National Lesbian Health Organization, improves the health of lesbians, bisexual and transgender women who partner with women (WPW) and their families by:
Providing direct services, offering support to lesbians, bisexual and transgender individuals with cancer and other life-threatening illnesses;
Offering various support groups: for cancer clients, caregivers, those grieving a loss, as well as health & wellness groups, including: smoking cessation, nutrition, etc.;
Educating lesbian, bisexual and transgender individuals about important health issues;
Educating health-care providers about the needs and concerns of their lesbian, bisexual and transgender clients;
Working in coalition with other health organizations on lesbian, bisexual and transgender health;
Conducting primary research about lesbian, bisexual and transgender individuals health;
Promoting lesbian, bisexual and transgender health advocacy and activism at the national, state and local levels;

Advocating for complete LGBT inclusion in mainstream health initiatives;
Educating policymakers, the press, and the general public about lesbian, bisexual and transgender health; and,

Alternatives for Battered Women is now the Willow Center
The community and culture we live in and serve have evolved. We are proud to announce that our agency will now officially be known as Willow Domestic Violence Center to better reflect our mission in today’s world.
We believe that everyone has the right to be safe and recognize that domestic violence is not just physical.
Why Willow? The willow tree is sheltering and a beacon of hope. A willow can grow from a single, broken branch and it will prevail with grace under all kinds of pressure. Its branches can be woven together to create something entirely new and incredibly durable. For us, a willow represents a vast, underlying strength that comes from within and radiates out.
The Agency provides a full continuum of services, including crisis counseling, support and prevention/education. Services for men and women, transgender knowledgeable and welcoming, 24 hour hotline.
