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, race, ethnicity, sex, gender identity, career choice, sexual orientation, or other circumstances of legitimate life choices.

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. The Women’s Center provides services in a non-judgmental and supportive manner to individuals as they make decisions for their lives.

How to Give

State and federal funding covers two-thirds of the annual operating costs including all of the programs and staff who provide direct client services. None of that funding though is used to cover costs of having Harbor House, marketing our services, educational materials, or the offices in Marquette or Munising for domestic and sexual violence crisis support and advocacy.

This is paid through individual and corporate donations, community grants, third party fundraisers, Women’s Center, Inc. annual fundraisers, and our through revenue that is generated from our resale shop, Pak Ratz.
