The staff and volunteers of the center continue to dedicate their efforts to ending these forms of violence and all forms of oppression of victims/survivors. Services include support groups for victims/survivors, community education and advocacy. For more information, find them on Facebook, visit www.wrcofwinona.org or call 507-452-4440.
