Originally founded as a rape-crisis center in 1984, Hope Alliance expanded its services to help survivors of domestic violence soon after. Along with providing legal assistance and victim's-rights education, Hope Alliance runs a 24-hour crisis hotline and emergency shelter. There, case managers work one-on-one with women and their kids, helping them plan for future stability while keeping them safe and fed. An on-staff children’s counselor provides special programming and therapy for kids who have witnessed or experienced abuse, and a community-outreach program helps educate the public about the prevention of domestic and sexual violence.

Each appointment at Georgetown Acupuncture and Herbs begins with an assessment. This meeting discusses everything from your diet to your exercise routine, but most importantly, it asks you where you're hurting. From there, practitioners turn to the centuries-old tradition of acupuncture, placing hair-thin needles along various points of the body to help with ailments such as back pain, migraines, fibromyalgia, and weight gain that isn't just from forgetting to take off your backpack. Every session also includes a hot stone foot bath and back treatment, as well as reflexology, during which the therapist massages "reflex" points that can ease pain and promote relaxation.
