Mid-Minnesota Women's Center, Inc. Charity Profile
The Women's Center has been empowering women and children through a variety of programs since 1978. Our oldest and largest program is a 24-hour emergency shelter for battered women and their children. In addition to physical safety, the shelter provides personal advocacy, information and referral, support groups, and education for the larger community about violence and its effects.
An offshoot of shelter services, the Peaceful Alternatives and Life Skills program (P.A.L.S.) Is our violence prevention program for elementary schools; it is available to schools everywhere through our published manuals.
Our third, and newest, program is the Alex & Brandon Child Safety Center. Opened in 2000, the Safety Center offers a safe and kid-oriented environment where families in crisis can visit with each other under supervision by trained staff. Parents who are divorced and have unsupervised visits with their children but are experiencing conflict over visitation can also exchange their kids at the Center without having contact with each other.
