Located in West Berkeley, the WDDC is the
first daytime program for women and children in Berkeley. Established
in 1988 as a volunteer cooperative, WDDC's staff continue to be
mostly community volunteers providing services five days a week.
The WDDC has evolved from its original mission
of providing emergency and crisis response to a program of on-going
support services. WDDC serves an average of 150 women and children
each month in a nurturing, home like environment.
