New Horizons Shelter and Outreach Centers, a shelter for individuals and families who have experienced domestic violence, was organized in 1978 through the cooperative efforts of an informal group of citizens in the La Crosse area who recognized the need for services to victims of domestic abuse. A temporary emergency shelter was established, existing through the cooperation of several community agencies, until the shelter could be housed in a building purchased for that purpose by La Crosse County with block grant funds. By 1987, the demands for services outgrew the La Crosse County building, and New Horizons was able to purchase its own shelter facility, using monies raised in a community capital campaign drive.
New Horizons Shelter has contracts to provide shelter and services to a seven county (population 238,236) area in Wisconsin. Governed by the local YWCA until January 1, 1993, New Horizons Shelter is now free-standing with its own working Board of Directors.
New Horizons Shelter is staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year to provide emergency shelter and food to victims of domestic violence and their children. The shelter’s Crisis Advocates provide support and advocacy for women and children through their shelter stay. Often, when women come into shelter, they are forced to flee their homes quickly and under great stress, leaving most of their belongings. Through community donations, New Horizons is able to provide families with clothing and personal care items.
