The Mission of The Women’s Center is provide programs and services in Marquette and Alger Counties that Protect, Educate, Advocate, Counsel, and Empower (PEACE).

The Women's Center believes that every individual is entitled to dignity and respect, and that women and men should be treated equally under the law and by society in general. No individual should be discriminated against or limited by society based on age, sex, career choice, sexual orientation, or other circumstances of legitimate life choices. The Women's Center provides services in a non-judgmental and supportive manner to individuals as they make decisions for their lives. The Women's Center advocates for change in the larger society to eliminate bias and to enhance the ability of all individuals to be fully functioning members of society.



200 Good Men

The Women’s Center of Alger & Marquette Counties knows very well that men are key to the battle against domestic and sexual violence in our communities. The COVID-19 pandemic has not stopped our work, we are essential providers in our region and our shelter is full.

With “Safer at Home” instructions for the pandemic, home is not a safe place for many people. As our area reopens businesses and we all venture out more, victims are able to reach out for the help they need. Our campaign typically asks for a $100 donation, but in these extraordinary times, any donation, be it more or less, is greatly appreciated and will be recognized.

Now, more than ever, please back our mission to support all victims/survivors of domestic and sexual violence by financially contributing to our programs that Protect, Educate, Advocate, Counsel and Empower. The 2020 campaign runs through July 15 – August 15.

Consider donating in honor or in memory of your father, husband, son or significant other. Give the gift of helping others to the man who has always looked out for the ones he loves.
