WomensLaw is not just for women. We serve and support all survivors, no matter their sex or gender.
Places that Help: Michigan
Included in this list are shelters and local programs that provide support, counseling, safety planning, and other services to victims of abuse. If you cannot get help from the organization nearest you, you might want to try calling one in a neighboring county. (Have a suggestion or correction? Contact us!)
Please note that we list the organizations by the county where the office is located – however, many offices serve multiple counties. You can click the “View All” to look through the complete list of organizations. If you are looking for an attorney to represent you in court or to give you legal advice about your situation, go to our Finding a Lawyer page instead.
