United Way Campaign in full swing!

WISE advocates are helping to spread the word – the United Way is a great way to advocate!  Because of the generosity of the Mecosta/Osceola United Way, WISE housed 203 children in shelter October 2013-September 2014.  That’s 2,433 nights of safe sleep for local children!  Thanks United Way!

The United Way supports the Children’s Program and other shelter activities, and helps promote Domestic Violence Awarenss Month during their campaign.  WISE would not be nearly as effective without the United Way’s support.  Plus, the missions of each organization line up:




Live United!

  • Our Mission

    Women’s Information Service Inc. (WISE) provides crisis intervention and support services to survivors of domestic and sexual violence by empowering individuals, children and families along with our community partners to reclaim their sense of self.

  • What Is Domestic Violence?

    Domestic violence is an increasingly visible social and legal problem that includes physical abuse, verbal abuse and stalking.
    Domestic violence is a crime! It not only endangers the health and safety of the immediate victims, child and adult, but spills out into our schools, the police and our places of work. Domestic violence is never the fault of the victim.

  • What is Sexual Assault?

    Sexual assault includes rape in any form, forced sexual contact and sexual harassment. Sexual assault is a crime of violence, not sex, and can happen to anyone regardless of economic status or appearance. No one asks to be sexually assaulted.
