The mission of The Women’s Center is to provide safety, shelter, and support to empower all impacted by domestic abuse, sexual violence, child abuse, and trafficking.

It is our vision to create an engaged community that does not tolerate or accept interpersonal violence and provide abundant resources to ensure futures free from violence. As the only agency of our kind in Waukesha County (spanning 580 square miles), we provide a range of life-saving and life-changing programs and services that heal and empower adults and children on their paths to build a future without violence.

All of our services are offered confidentially and at no cost to survivors from all socio-economic levels. They include: emergency shelter and 24-Hour Hotline; legal advocacy; family counseling; domestic violence, sexual assault, and abuse counseling; support groups for adults and children; substance abuse and mental health support; transitional living; community education and violence prevention; employment counseling and life-skills development; translation/interpretation in any language; and free on-site childcare for clients utilizing any of these services.
