Women's Shelter, Inc.

Please join us in helping to end domestic violence in SE Minnesota and give today!

Who We Are...
The Women’s Shelter, organized in 1976, began as a critically important place of temporary shelter for women and their children experiencing domestic violence.  Today, temporary shelter remains a core, essential element of the organization’s mission and its services have expanded to provide domestic violence victims with a wider range of choices regarding their personal journey to safety and fulfillment.  In addition to safe shelter, we currently offer:
  • A 24-hour mobile advocacy program and crisis line
  • Alternative housing to reduce barriers to violence free living (transitional housing for homeless women and children)
  • Legal and general advocacy
  • Support groups for women all along their journey 
  • Programming for children to help heal wounds and prevent future violence
  • Multi-cultural staff and services as well as special services to immigrant and refugee battered women and their children
  • Education programming to educate the public about difficulties facing victims
Our vision is to end domestic violence in SE Minnesota and until that day, we are striving to support and assist women how and where they need us most.  And, we are making a difference...every day...one woman at a time.

"I don't know how I would have done this without you - no one else understands (about abuse) - they just say leave."  Taylor R.
