Welcome to WATA-Women Against Teen Abuse, located in Columbia, SC!

WATA Mission


 WATA’S mission is to inspire and assist youth and teenagers who experience acts of bullying and abuse. By increasing the communities’ awareness, our goal is to provide an environment that will reduce the anxiety of life’s challenges and feelings of abandonment. WATA will Empower and Educate on the seriousness of these acts, as well as help restore confidence while teaching our youth how to dream again. We will equip them with life skills to live a healthy life style and to transition them into a holistic adulthood
