There is a need in our community:

New Beginnings APFV serves over 1000 victims every year with advocacy and support.

In 2017, New Beginnings APFV helped 704 victims of domestic & sexual violence in Walworth County.

In 2016, 48 families (118 women and children) needed to relocate. Local motels were the only option.

The closest shelter for victims of domestic violence is 30-50 miles away, however rarely has openings for out-of-county persons.


To provide supportive services and advocacy for adult and child victims of domestic or sexual abuse, and to educate the community about these critical issues.


To build a domestic violence center in Walworth County by 2020 to help serve the needs of our community.
