Safe Berks, formerly Berks Women in Crisis, provides a safe haven and ongoing support system for victims of domestic violence and sexual assault.
Abusers use specific behaviors to control victims. Red Flags include: history of abusing others; excessive flattery and/or criticism; extreme jealousy; always wanting to know where you are; & accusations of infidelity. Watch out for Red Flags and reach out for advice or help.
On Dec. 12, 2016, Berks Women in Crisis, also known as BWIC, announced our new name, Safe Berks, to more than 400 people at our 40th Anniversary Celebration of Peace. Check out the video (on right) about our decision to change our name to Safe Berks!
