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!

For the safety of our staff and our customers, we will be closing Nifty Thrifty until this pandemic is over. This was an easy decision because we want to make sure our staff and customers stay safe, but it was difficult because our small staff relies on their income, Women and Children’s Horizons counts on the revenue that is generated at Nifty, and we know our customers love to shop there to support us. 
We would ask that you save your donations until further notice, since it is also not safe for us to continue to receive donations until we get the all clear that this is over. 
If you would like to support the agency and Nifty Thrifty, you can donate directly on the Women and Children’s Horizons website (wchkenosha.org) or through the agency or Nifty’s Facebook pages. 
We recognize that this is a very difficult time for everyone, please be kind to one another and remember that most non-profits will be struggling during this time and will be grateful for your continued support.
