How You Can Help


The Way Out Women’s Center is a 501c3 organization that provides a 10 day free, residential detox to women trying to defeat the disease of alcoholism. We operate fully on donations and fundraisers. We accept no government funding. There are several ways you can help.

Financial Support

You can support the WOWC financially in two ways. You can donate to our Daily Operations Fund or to our Building Fund. The Daily Operations fund covers the costs and expenses incurred to keep the doors open to our residents. This includes food, utilities, cleaning and maintenance supplies. The Building Fund was created to procure a future for the center. We have aspirations of building a new, modernized facility that will increase our capacity and lengthen the duration our residents can stay. Our current facility is outdated and limiting. If you would like to donate to either of our funds, you may either mail a check to our PO Box or click on the PayPal link below.

Material Donations

The Way Out Women’s Center accepts donations from the public during our regular business hours 10:00am to 8:00pm 7 days a week. We accept donations of perishable and non-perishable food items, cleaning supplies and feminine hygiene products. We also accept gently worn clothing, shoes and jackets. New undergarments and socks for the women are greatly appreciated.

Volunteer Opportunities

We are often also in need of trades or services that could be donated for the benefit of the house. Examples of this could include: landscaping, electrical, carpentry, HVAC repair, plumbing or general home maintenance.

We always welcome AA members in good standing to attend meetings in the clubhouse. We are also looking for women in AA to provide guidance and sponsorship to the residents. Our Steering Committee is currently seeking new volunteers. It is comprised of sober women volunteers from the Greater Houston area. The primary responsibility of the steering committee is to attend to the needs of the residents. This includes grocery needs, securing rides for the residents to appointments, ensuring the cleanliness and maintenance of the house, assisting with Sunday morning breakfast, and to offer a source of hope an honest caring. If you are interested in joining the Steering Committee call the Center at (713) 645-9962.
