If you have been abused, or are currently in an abusive relationship, please know that you are not alone and the abuse is not your fault. You can find safety and support through Agape House and other local and national resources.

To find out more about how we can help, please call us at (262) 275-6466 or email us. For immediate assistance, contact either 911 or your local human resources services. A listing of local and national resources is listed above.

If you suspect a child has been abused, please keep calm, tell the child that you believe him or her, show interest and concern, and reassure and support the child by acting, either by contacting a trusted adult or local resource, such as a child’s school counselor or local government agencies.

Report abuse to your local or state child protective service agency, or to your neighborhood police precinct. Reports of alleged child abuse or neglect in Wisconsin should be made to the county where the child or the child’s family resides.

Listed below are options for 24/7 help. You can contact Agape House at 262-275-6466 for additional information, to set up an interview for involvement in the program, or to schedule an appointment at our Counseling Center.
