About Us

1003165_10201080567728587_888692478_n[1]Established in 1998, Wisconsin Rural Women’s Initiative was created in response to the call of rural/farm women (“No one’s doing that in our neighborhood!”) for support.

Our mission: to effect systemic change within families and their communities by providing programs that encourage and build self-esteem, that are situated in familiar settings, and that offer a community in which to network in and find support.

Many of our programs deal with stress reduction techniques, anger management, grief and loss issues, communication skills, and leadership training. All of our programs are built around the needs of the particular group we are working with. Through our events women are provided support and access to resources as needed.

Currently, more than 3,000 women throughout 62 counties of Wisconsin have participated in a WRWI program.
