Waukesha Womens Center..Pay it Forward...Lots of Opportunities !

By
Real Estate Agent with EXP Realty 414-525-0563 57026-90 Broker

    We have chosen to adopt the Waukesha Women's Center as our primary "Pay it Forward" choice. We cannot imagine many times in a person't life when they need a hand up as they do when they find themselves in need of the shelter and services that the Women's Center provides.

 Waukesha County Womens Center  This organization has been a community pillar of "paying it forward"since it was founded in 1977. Its mission is to provide safety, shelter, and support to women and their families and to facilitate their development. The Women's Center provides free and comprehensive services designed to address the issues of domestic violence, sexual assault and abuse.  This worthy organization receives some of its funding thru the United Way and with higher demand in these times, there are many ways that they can be helped directly as well.

   The community outreach services include help in the areas of Domestic Violence, Sexual abuse and assault, the development of Parenting Skills and employment services.

         The needs of the Womens' Shelter are many and varied...money is always appreciated of course and tax deductible.  Beyond that...if you can find it in your heart and wallet to do a little shopping you may choose everythng from non-perishable food items to gift cards, pajamas, tolietries...bedding for single beds...click here for their list.

   We vary the things we give,...some necessary food, dress some beds...but also provide games for the children...some of the Candy Land and Cootie Variety for those who can't yet read....some books for those who can...some nail polish, makeup and hair products for a little lift at a time when it is need the most.

  The Shelter makes it easy....to give back and for them to receive without spending money...how cool is that..

An excellent cause!  And while this is the season we think about giving, organizations like this can use help throughout the year!

  There is most probably a shelter like this in your community....they deserve your consideration for a hand up...and would be sooo appreciative !

Sadly, practically every community has a shelter such as this.  I say sadly because it tears my heart out that so many women and children need protection and no community is exempt.  What you are doing is admirable and I hope more will follow your example.

We hear you Susan...we can't think of a better place to offer a hand up....and you are right...you can find such a shelter in every community...let's hope our members rain upon them with charitable giving.
