End Domestic Abuse Wisconsin (End Abuse) provides legal services for immigrant and refugee survivors, including support to social service agencies to provide holistic support systems for survivors of domestic and sexual violence.
Operating a small non-profit legal office, End Abuse prides itself on facilitating greater access and justice for underserved communities. Over the last decade, we have committed to providing culturally relevant legal representation to meet the needs of low-income domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking and human trafficking survivors seeking legal protections in family law, restraining orders and immigration.
We partner with community agencies, law enforcement, other non-profit organizations and local domestic and sexual abuse service programs to offer a comprehensive array of services to meet client needs. In addition to direct services, each of our attorneys advocates for social justice through providing community training and educational programming, local and national policy committee work, and ongoing support and legal information to agencies throughout Wisconsin.
Your support of this initiative helps support the costs of providing legal services to victims. Some examples of the impact your donations will make are: ensuring there is a safe space where victims and their children can feel relaxed while they meet with legal staff, ensuring there are reliable ways for victims to communicate safely and confidentially with their attorneys, and helping victims access the legal system through their attorneys by creating a network with courts and other legal service providers to ensure effective representation, among others.
Our legal program is partially supported with grants, however we must raise funds to fully support the work and ensure continued accesibility of services to survivors in Wisconsin.
We currently provide pro-bono legal assistance to over 700 survivors of violence each year.
