WISH wants to know more about how we are serving our community! Please consider taking this short (no more than 10 minute) survey! This survey is anonymous and results will be used to further refine our services for survivors of violence and inform our strategies for violence prevention.

Women in Safe Homes is a 32 bed shelter for women and children who have/are experiencing domestic violence or sexual assault. WISH also provides referrals to safe homes for men who are in need of housing due to domestic violence or sexual assault. Other services include: a 24-hour Crisis Line for victims and survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault, Hospital response and reporting assistance, Legal Advocacy services, Family Services, Education and Prevention Programs and various support groups. We thank you for taking the time to complete this survey.
Sexual Assault Awareness Month
