How We Help

We provide safety, shelter, and support to empower all impacted by domestic violence, sexual assault, child abuse, and trafficking. Founded in 1977, we were the first and continue to be the only agency of our kind in Waukesha County. Our holistic, trauma-informed programming emphasizes healing, empowerment, and justice so that survivors can move beyond abuse and build peaceful futures for themselves and their families.
