All proceeds from the Sunday Salons benefit Women Helping Women, a non-profit dedicated to serving women and men who are survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault and stalking. Women Helping Women staff and volunteers provide crisis intervention services including hotline, hospital accompaniment, court advocacy, support groups and face-to-face advocacy. The agency also takes a leading role in educating the community about these crimes. Women Helping Women prides itself on being present at the places and times that survivors need them the most, reaching over 12,000 individuals each year. Your support of Sunday Salons empowers survivors and helps Women Helping Women raise awareness to prevent future abuse. Women Helping Women is funded in part by the City of Cincinnati, United Way of Greater Cincinnati, and other sources of public and private support.

Reservations are taken in the order payment is received.  To guarantee your place, please visit  In order to give our hosts an accurate count, our reservation deadline is the Wednesday before the salon.

Admission purchase cannot be exchanged or refunded.  All sales are final.  In the event of a weather emergency, please call the Sunday Salon line to hear a recorded message of any salon cancellations or postponements.

It is best to purchase your tickets early to avoid missing out on your favorite host or speaker.

To all the hosts who welcome us to their home, offer delicious fare and warm hospitality to our guests, and to the speakers and presenters who generously donate their time and talents, Women Helping Women offers our sincere thanks and gratitude.

Can’t make it to any of the salons?  Women Helping Women relies largely on private donations for financial support.  Any contributions would be greatly appreciated.
