The symbol of this year’s gemstone theme is the pearl, the ocean’s gemstone.  This beautiful, natural gemstone is created through a lengthy process and comes in many colors and shapes, all of which are beautiful. At the Women’s Center of Jacksonville, we have a history of helping women make changes in their lives. As with the pearl, changes occur through a sometimes lengthy process. The Women’s Center, with its programs and services, its advocacy, education, and outreach, provides hope and support to that process which leads to improving the lives of women.

The Women’s Center of Jacksonville is a nonprofit, Jacksonville-based organization offering education, support, and advocacy to women and men who have survived sexual assault. Each year, the Women’s Center of Jacksonville provides 300 sexual assault survivors with forensic exams. The Women’s Center of Jacksonville is the only certified rape crisis center in Duval, Baker and Nassau Counties and also offers community education, counseling, referral assistance, rape prevention services and breast cancer education, support and advocacy at complimentary and affordable prices.
