Home for the Holidays?

The shelter will be providing a temporary home for 14-19 women and children this Christmas.

During this difficult season for families, YOU can help make a difference to the lives of children by donating to the shelter.  A small contribution from you can be a big difference to someone small.

WISE needs diapers, toys, medicine, wrapping paper and a variety of other items that will help make this year a light in the darkness for many individuals.

If you are able to provide a small gift for a mother who is struggling, the following suggestions are always welcome: driving gloves, scented candles, warm socks, and slippers.

Please see our WISE Wish List under “Support WISE” for a list of items that are needed throughout the year.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

  • 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.
