Our Mission

The mission of The Women’s Community is to provide specialized services and resources to people in central Wisconsin affected by domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking and human trafficking. Our goal is to help individuals and families attain greater emotional and economic self-sufficiency.

Our Vision

TWC is a model organization that empowers communities and individuals who have survived the effects of violence and oppression through the provision of quality programming, advocacy, and education.  The ultimate goal is to reduce/eradicate violence.
