We stand up for women.

At Saint Martha’s, we are domestic violence experts and fierce women’s advocates. We back them and advocate on their behalf, helping them navigate the often-complicated legal, medical, governmental, and community systems.

System Advocacy

We’ve been advocating for victims and survivors of domestic violence since 1983. We know these systems and use this experience to guide women through it and set them up for success.

Court Watch

Partnering with St. Louis Ending Domestic and Sexual Violence Network, the Court Watch Project works to make the justice system more effective and responsive in handling Order of Protection cases. Trained volunteers observe court hearings and report feedback, helping to protect women and children now and in the future.
