Advocacy

Rural Outreach program
For families living in rural communities in the west end of Racine County, isolation and fewer resources can add additional barriers to becoming free from violent relationships. Advocates are available in the west end to offer similar services that specially address the needs of families living in rural settings. A full program is available, located within Love, Inc. by calling 262-763-6226 and asking for Sherry with the Women’s Resource Center.

Also a part of the rural program is a small permanent housing project (five homes) that offer life-long support to victims who have disabilities. More information about the Purple Ribbon Permanent Housing Project can be obtained by talking to Sherry at 262-763-6226.



Children's Program

Counseling, weekly support groups, recreation programs and tutoring are available for the children of the women we serve.
