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.



A Bed is a Santuary!

About six years ago, Harbor House was the recipient of four used bunk beds that NMU was giving away. These beds have gotten much use and they are on their last “legs.” When Esther Kivisto toured Harbor House in December to see the new security doors that she and Superior Health Foundation purchased, she noticed and remarked that one bunk bed was literally swaying in the breeze.
That very same day, after she left Harbor House, she called and enlisted the help and support of Steve Anderson, owner of House Hold Appliance. Together they worked with Art Van Furniture to have a new sturdy bunk bed delivered and assembled that very same week.
Thank you Esther and Steve for supporting our clients in the shelter!
