Women’s Advocates - Champions for Domestic Assault Survivors
According to Domestic Shelters.org one in four women in the U.S. will be targeted by an abusive partner in their lifetime. Nearly one in five murder victims in the U.S. was killed by an intimate partner. Shocking stats, aren’t they? We have a long way to go.

The shelter founders helped establish legal protection for victim survivors and their children in Minnesota as well as some of the first domestic violence legislation in the United States.
