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, most will have access to their email. The administration office is open intermittently and the shelter is open. Please call 262-652-9900 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 now back open. We are asking that our customers wear face masks when visiting the store. Thank you

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!

Children's Services

Child needs are addressed through various groups, such as the Child Witness Groups. Child Witness groups, for residents and non-resident children, allow children to learn and talk about domestic violence and its effects on them. Children learn about safety plans, self-esteem, healthy behavior and more.

Safe Exchange

The Primary goal is to help parents reduce the stress of visitation exchanges with their children.
