Welcome to PWF

The Petrosino Well Being Foundation (PWF) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to helping victims of abuse. Clients are given the means to rebuild self esteem with the use of licensed counselors and learn self protection methods to guard against future violent acts.

Don't be a Victim

Don’t be a victim by choice. Calling PWF is the first step. Trained counselors will quickly assess your need and determine whether PWF can help you break the cycle of abuse and begin building your self esteem and coping skills. PWF staff will also be able to direct you to other agencies which provide additional victim assistance.

Take Charge of Your Life

PWF offers personal protection techniques. Certified instructors will prepare you to think smarter and develop the essential skills and awareness to keep yourself out of dangerous situations and to get away from attackers, abductors and abusers.


Our licensed counseling affiliates are available for victims who are dealing with the aftermath of a violent act. The PWF recognizes that healing from a trauma draws upon an individual’s physical, mental and spiritual resources. Directed and private counseling is completely confidential.

If you or someone you know has been victimized and is still at risk, please have contact PWF. Our aim is to help victims recover from the traumas of past violence and to be able to protect themselves from future incidents. Scholarships are available to supplement client fees, assessed by need.
