The Women’s Center is gearing up to move 2 miles east from its longtime Vienna office to Tysons, but will continue to provide its usual offerings, the group’s leader said.
“Our services will be the same – counseling, domestic-violence advocacy, workshops, etc.,” said executive director and CEO Rachna Krishnan. “We will continue in-person counseling and remote counseling. The staff will be the same. The D.C. office remains exactly the same.”
People should continue to call to make counseling appointments, schedule workshops and arrange for other services, she said.
“We are open and ready to take care of clients,” said Krishnan, who has led The Women’s Center since January 2020.
The organization will spend the next couple of weeks moving into an office building at 8230 Old Courthouse Road in Tysons, located not far from that street’s intersection with Gallows Road.
The new office is about equidistant from the Greensboro and Tysons Metro stations and has access to three bus lines, Krishnan said.
There is ample parking at the new location. The Tysons office space also is more modern and comfortable than the old site and is complaint with the Americans with Disabilities Act, she said.
The Women’s Center is among several groups being displaced from four Vienna Courts office-condominium buildings, located at 127-133 Park St., N.E., in Vienna, which will be razed to make way for a residential development.
The Vienna Town Council last December approved a proposal by BFR Construction Co. to build 24 condominium units in 12 buildings on the 1.66-acre site. “Vienna Courts,” as the development will be called, will have six fewer condominiums than the developer originally proposed and have reduced lot coverage.
