Community Resources

The mission of the Collective is to increase engagement and leadership among women of color to transform systems and policies in ways that remove intersecting barriers to good health outcomes. Our overall goal is for women of color to hold leadership positions that allow them to fully participate in analysis and decisions related to reproductive justice.

The Milwaukee LGBT Community Center is dedicated to serving the needs of LGBTQ people and to making the Greater Milwaukee area safer and more inclusive. We focus our programming around anti-violence, healthy relationships, counseling, and financial coaching. Our Center’s resources include a lending library with over 2000 LGBT titles, meeting space for over 100 groups during the year, computer/internet access and referrals.

Founded in 1980, the Milwaukee Women’s Center provides comprehensive services and treatment for women, men, and children whose lives have been affected by domestic violence, addiction, mental health issues, and poverty.

Our mission is to offer sexual abuse survivors and their loved ones opportunities for healing by providing support, advocacy and community education.Our vision allows us to create a model sexual trauma service agency committed to providing integrative and holistic services to adult survivors. We embody the best practices of scholarship, experience and, most importantly, survivor wisdom. We operate from a philosophy of abundance, inviting all to share their gifts as part of healing our community. We believe healing is possible for everyone. We are honored to be a part of the journey.

Our primary goals are to ensure the safety of victims of family violence and provide a pathway out of violence for victims and abusers through opportunities to make positive and lasting changes for themselves and their children.

At Diverse & Resilient, we see a future where lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people in Wisconsin thrive, living healthy, satisfying lives in safe, supportive communities.
