WOmen's & Children's Horizons
The mission of Women and Children's Horizons is to provide support, shelter, education, training and healing services to victims of sexual and domestic abuse, their families and the community.
Women and Children's Horizons was established in 1976 and is the oldest incorporated shelter in Wisconsin. The foundation for Women and Children's was set in April, 1976 when a Kenosha Vista supervisor became disturbed by statistics which showed the undeniable seriousness of domestic violence against women. Together with twenty two other women and men, the group set up WCH's first 24 hour crisis line.
With only one public service announcement, the response to the crisis line was staggering, fielding 50 calls within a 24 hour period. Recognizing the strong community need, the group legally incorporated Women's Horizons, (later renamed Women and Children's Horizons) in October 1976. Today WCH is a well respected agency in the Kenosha community and has broadened its mission and extended services well beyond the 24 hour crisis line.
