Domestic violence and sexual assault survivors in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and northern Wisconsin have the opportunity to learn how trauma has impacted their life, explore resources and evaluate their options.

We’re providing services in a non-judgmental and supportive manner to survivors as they make decisions for their life. We treat others with dignity and respect and provide them with the support necessary to reestablish their sense of well-being. At the same time, the agency advocates for change in the larger society to eliminate bias and to enhance the ability of all individuals to be capable and accomplished members of society. Please join us by supporting our efforts to make a measurable difference in the lives of others!
