Wise Women Gathering Place

Wise Women Gathering Place Our MISSION is to promote Peace, Respect & Belonging through skill-building, sharing of resources, and caring support for our community.
WWGP is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, developed by Native American midwives. WWGP has been incorporated since 1998. Donations Welcome here http://giv.lt/1HBYugN Previously, it operated for decades as a home-bassed grass-roots women's circle. Children in tow, women gathered in each others homes discussing issues around healthy personal relationships, group consensus building, midwifery, breats-feeding, parenting, herbs and more. Five women in this community have apprenticed under mentor midwife Alice Skenadore and began their own midwifery practices. Many other women continue to attend their sisters, daughters, nieces, and friends at birthing providing essential support and encouragement.

Wise Women Gathering Place's Ultimate Goal "the long term vision" A community of individuals & families who possess motivation, knowledge, resources and skills to peacefully co-inhabit their environment, each having the individual sense of safety, opportunity, fulfillment, & belonging, and each fully committed to sustaining these values for every person, for all time.

Mission: Our MISSION is to promote Peace, Respect & Belonging through skill-building, sharing of knowledge, and caring support for our community. Our VISION is a vibrant community grounded in Peace, Respect, & Belonging.

Consent should be a part of your interactions with others when you’re texting, sexting, or using social media. Although you aren’t talking face-to-face, you should always consider how your actions might make another person feel and ask questions if you don’t know – just because technology connects us 24/7 doesn’t mean that your partner is always available. #IAsk #SAAM.

Brown County Homeless & Housing Coalition

Please read below about another community resource:

Did you know that NEWCAP has a homeless prevention program in Brown County?

If you are worried about being behind in your rent, here are a few tips they suggest during COVID19,

1) Contact your landlord if you are going to be behind, do not just ignore it. The landlord (and anyone else you owe money to) won't know they have been impacted unless they are told that. So, communicate!

2) If you do get behind, when you get your stimulus funds and unemployment starts, pay whatever you can toward their rent. The eviction moratorium is not a rent forgiveness program, it is a deferral only. Once the 60 days expires, landlords will be serving notices and evictions will likely start up if you have gotten behind and not paid anything.

3) Go to your landlord and ask for a 5 day right to cure letter. This does not set you up for eviction. There is still a moratorium on that. It does however make them eligible for help under a NEWCAP'prevention program. Tell your landlord there is a program they *may* be eligible for, but to find out, you need the letter first.

4) Contact NEWCAP staff who will see if you are eligible. If you are, NEWCAP can get you get caught up and help with some going forward as well.

Contact NEWCAP at 1-920-604-9191 or 800-242-7334 to find out more information.

Supporting Wisconsin's MMIWG Bill.
I suggested a friend of mine attend the Wise Men's Group at Wise Women Gathering Place. He laughed and asked, why is there a wise men's group at wise women gathering place? I said, "because as women started to gather for our healing purposes, we realized that the men we love also needed what we were accessing and the wise men's group was created to achieve that.
