The Women's Center is a community focused organization based in Marquette, Michigan, which provides 24/7 access to emergency intervention services and crisis intervention to the regional area. Individual & support group counseling and advocacy services are provided to survivors of domestic and sexual violence, dating violence and stalking through programs that Protect, Educate, Advocate, Counsel and Empower. (PEACE) For 40 years, it has been our mission to support survivors, to educate and encourage sensitive public awareness and to work relentlessly to change the attitudes that allow these violent crimes to continue.
The Harbor House is a safe haven shelter for survivors of domestic and sexual violence, also providing outreach services to survivors not residing in the shelter. It is the only shelter in Marquette and Alger Counties and usually operates at maximum capacity.
There is no charge for shelter or support services. All services are paid for though fundraising, grants and donations from our community. The need is real and the urgency is extreme. Please consider donating today.
