Children Volunteering to support WCH

Women and Children's Horizons recognizes the value and importance of children learning to volunteer and share at a young age. We are always amazed and inspired by the creativity and genuine dedication to service these young people have. For stories of children's volunteerism to WCH click here.


WCH Direct Service Volunteer needs:

Women and Children's Horizons, Inc. (WCH) is looking for volunteers to provide advocacy for survivors, families, and children who have been victims of domestic violence or sexual assault. Volunteers are wanted to assist clients at hospitals, and law enforcement agencies, assist children who are in shelter by providing care, tutoring or chaperoning for outside activities, or simply by being there to listen to a child; and to assist shelter staff by interacting with families. WCH will provide training. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer please contact Linda Baumeister, Volunteer Coordinator, at 262-656-3500.


WCH Outreach Volunteer needs:

WCH Volunteer of the Quarter- Nina Tracy

Nina Tracy has volunteered for Women and Children's Horizons since 2004. She is employed full time as a supervisor at Kenosha County Child Support Unit and is also a mother. Nina once wrote a letter about why she continues to act as an advocate. She does this because of the violence and pain victims face. Though, when you speak with Nina about all she has done, she always feels she can do more and strives to help whenever and where ever she can.

Nina has been WCH Volunteer of the Year and outside agencies have cited her as going beyond the expectation of an advocate. The quality she brings to WCH is patience, helpfulness, knowledge and compassion. Erma Bombeck once said "Volunteers are the only human being on the face of the earth who reflect the nation's compassion, unselfishness, caring, patience, need and just plain loving one another." This is true of Nina.

Quad Quilters of Western Kenosha & Racine Counties
The Quad Quilters is a group of dedicated women from four Catholic churches in Western Kenosha and Racine Counties who's passion for quilting and desire to help others has led to the group to quilt in support of local non-profits and humanitarian causes. The Quad Quilters have been quilting in support of WCH for nearly 2 years now and have recently finished their goal of providing quilts for all the beds in WCH's shelter. Below is a picture of one of quilts that will help make WCH's shelter more like home to the residents. Thank you Quad Quilters for your incredible talent and sincere dedication to WCH's mission. It has been a pleasure getting to know and work with you.


Sisters Pat Murray and Kathy Frederick of the Quad Quilters. Pat made the final journey and brought all the quilts to WCH.
