24-Hour Hotline 262.542.3828

The Women’s Center 24-Hour Hotline recently has been the target of a harassment campaign spreading on social media (sometimes known as the “man in charge” challenge), which has resulted in hundreds of prank calls with harassing and abusive statements that have severely disrupted our 24-Hour Hotline and our ability to provide urgent services to survivors. PLEASE BE ADVISED that these calls constitute “unlawful use of the telephone” under state law (Wis. Stat. § 947.012.) The Women’s Center is reporting calls to law enforcement and may pursue all available remedies under local, state, federal, and international law.

Boundaries within a Family Dynamic

Family dynamics are the patterns of interactions that we have with family members. Healthy family dynamics give us a sense of safety within the family unit, and unhealthy or even abusive dynamics may cause harm from a young age into adulthood. Join Marissa and Krystal in understanding family dynamics, and making sustainable choices for yourself that honor your voice in these relationships.
