Breaking the Cycle of Family Violence

The Milwaukee Women's Center aims to break the cycle of violence so that partners and families can live in peace. We provide comprehensive services for women victimized by an intimate partner or close relative, from staffing a 24-Hour Domestic Violence Hotline (414-671-6140) to providing a secure Emergency Shelter for women and their minor children. One the immediate crisis is resolved, we offer supportive services to ensure that women, men, and children involved in domestic violence can live free of abuse in the long term.

To contact the Milwaukee Women's Center to schedule an appointment, get information, or to speak to a crisis advocate staffing our 24-Hour Domestic Violence Hotline, call 414-671-6140.
