The mission of Women and Children's Horizons is to provide support, shelter, education, training and healing services to victims of sexual and domestic abuse, their families and the community.
As we all try to navigate during the COVID-19 pandemic, we have many staff working from home. The administration office and shelter are open with reduced staff. Please call if you are in need of services. We will try to serve some clients over the phone if possible. We are also asking that you do not bring any donations.
Nifty Thrifty is closed until at least the end of March. We will re-evaluate at that time. We are also asking that you please do not bring donations to Nifty Thrifty until we re-open. We will definietly be needing donors and shoppers when we return. We look forward to seeing you then!
We will continue to evaluate and monitor the situation daily. We appreciate your understanding during these difficult circumstances. Many are financially affected, which is likely true of all non-profits. If you would like to support Women and Children's Horizons you can make a donation on this website (bottom of screen) or visit our Facebook page. We appreciate your support and hope that we can resume our normal business operations soon! Take care everyone and remember to choose kindness as we are all in this together!
The Circle of Change is a 28-week program for men and women who have used violence in their relationship and wish to change. Groups are available for men and women. Groups are held weekly at Women and Children’s Horizons administration building. Sessions are two hours long.
Referrals for the Circle of Change come from a variety of sources including; courts, the department of corrections, clergy, private therapists, defense attorneys, child protective services, social workers, friends and those who realize on their own that they have been abusive, and want to take steps to change.
Group sessions cover a variety of topics related to relationships and violence. Some topics covered include: what counts as violence?, abuse versus respectful communication, managing conflict, sexual respect and intimacy, ending relationships respectfully, effects of violence on the victim, effects on children, modeling respect and empathy for children, accountability, jealousy, anger, dishonesty, self-care/stress management, and redefining masculinity.
