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.
