Donate to our local news fund, help a nonprofit

We’re on a mission in 2022 to work on a year-long series about housing in Racine County and we need your help to fund it. For every $250 in donations that we receive, we’ll give a nonprofit one free month in advertising.

The Women’s Resource Center of Racine will be hosting an online silent auction as part of their Domestic Violence Awareness campaign this weekend. The auction will be held October 29 – 31.

Proceeds will go towards supporting the Center’s mission of combating domestic violence, and helping survivors to move forward with their lives.

About the silent auction:

  • The silent auction will be held on the Women’s Resource Center Facebook page.
  • The auction will go live at 5:00 p.m. on Friday, October 29.
  • All bids must be placed by 5:00 p.m. on Sunday, October 31.

The National Center for Injury Prevention and Control reports that 1 in 3 women in Wisconsin have experienced some form of physical violence by an intimate partner. And as the COVID-19 pandemic drags on, not only are the number of domestic violence cases on the rise, but providing adequate care and support has proven more difficult and costly than before.

In an effort to combat the increasingly difficult obstacles, WRC has added a text line, housed individuals in motels when the shelter was unavailable, provided remote sessions, and even delivered food and supplies to those in need.

WRC is the only Domestic Violence shelter and service provider in Racine County and assists anyone fleeing a domestic violence situation.

Services include:
Domestic violence education
Family healing services
Legal advocacy
24/7 advocacy
24-hour crisis line: (262) 633-3233
