Make a Gift

As a nonprofit agency, we rely heavily on the support of our community to supplement the funding from federal, state, and county grants and contracts as well as the financial assistance we receive from the Great Rivers United Way. We are so thankful for the support that allows us to continue to provide free and confidential services to survivors of abuse.

Donations can be made online or through the mail. To donate online, click here. Donations made by check should be written to New Horizons Shelter and Outreach Centers and mailed to PO Box 2031, La Crosse, WI 54602.

Make an In-Kind Donation

Survivors who utilize our emergency shelter rely on generous donations from our community to meet their basic needs while fleeing from a life of abuse. While we appreciate the generosity of our community in donating many items, we are limited in space and can only accept specific items. Please view our current needs list here. Also, follow us on Facebook for immediate needs.


Every year, volunteers contribute over 8,000 hours of work within our agency through various roles. If you are interested in learning more about the opportunities available click here or contact our Volunteer & Education Coordinator at 608-791-2610 ext. 1301 or

Volunteer opportunities can also be seen on Ugetconnected.
