The mission of The Friendship Center is to be a safe haven for those affected by domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking and to empower our community to flourish in relationships free from violence.
Founded in 1971, The Friendship Center is the community resource for addressing and preventing domestic violence, sexual assault and stalking through advocacy, education and outreach in Lewis and Clark, Broadwater, and Jefferson Counties.
Domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking do not discriminate and either do we. Our services are available to anyone, regardless of gender or sexual orientation.

REQUEST A SPEAKER
We want to increase prevention efforts through public awareness campaigns, education, and outreach. Wouldn’t it be a beautiful day if our services were no longer needed because family violence and sexual assault were eliminated?
Call or email us to discuss opportunities.
