New location to improve accessibility at Women Center

MARION, IL (KFVS) –  The Women Center in Marion has moved to a new location along Anker Drive in Marion.

The organization offers counseling and advocacy to men, women, and children who have been victims of domestic violence and sexual assault.

The office is now next to the Department of Motor Vehicles in Marion, Ill.

Megan Jones-Williams, program coordinator for the Women’s Centers, Inc. says the new location will help the organization better serve its clients in Williamson County.

“We’re just really excited to have a space that’s welcoming and warm and available for people to receive the help that they need,” Jones-Williams said.

The Women Centers, Inc. has three offices in Southern Illinois — an office in Benton, Carbondale, and in Marion. The group serves people in Williamson, Jackson, Saline, Franklin, Perry, Johnson, and Union counties in Illinois.

The group has a more than $1 million budget and offers its services for free.
