Who We Are
Established in January of 1983, New Day Shelter is a safe haven for victims of Domestic Abuse and Sexual Assault. We are a non-profit organization, which provides emergency housing and food to victims and their children. Beyond performing crisis intervention and support services, New Day Shelter is an important grassroots effort toward affecting the social change that is necessary to prevent and ultimately reduce family violence and sexual assault in the communities that we serve. We do this by providing an enhanced service provision; Self-Sufficiency Programming, Sexual Assault Intervention Program, Children's Programming, community education, training to professionals, and presentations to age specific (K-12) non-violence curriculum to classrooms in the area schools. Furthermore, New Day Shelter provides a culturally sensitive Native American component to all shelter programs and services. For more information, please see "Shelter Services" in this website.
We’re excited to share that in 2016 over 335,000 Thrivent members chose to direct Choice Dollars® to more than 32,000 churches, schools and other nonprofits, including Northwoods Women Inc, through Thrivent Choice®. Based on member recommendations, Northwoods Women Inc received $709 in charitable outreach funding in 2016. The Thrivent Choice program helps members of Thrivent Financial make a positive impact in their communities.
2016 CHOICE DOLLARS EXPIRE SOON!
All 2016 Choice Dollars have been made available for members to direct so there is no reason to wait. This is a simple reminder about Thrivent Choice® and the positive impact that can be made by directing Choice Dollars to New Day Shelter/Northwoods Women Inc.
