Women and Children's Auxiliary

Help Our Mission

Our Mission Statement

With kindness, compassion and generosity, the Auxiliary's goal is to support women with children who are taking the courageous steps to recover from their addictions.

Who We Are

The Women and Children's Auxiliary is a group of women who do a variety of volunteer projects for the families at the Center. The Auxiliary was created in 2003 by co-founders Ginny Peterson and Marilyn Christiansen. Since then the Auxiliary has grown to over 60 members.

This exceptional group of women supports the Women and Children's Center in many ways. Each year they host:

  • Back-to-School Supply Drive
  • Easter Party
  • Halloween Party
  • Thanksgiving Dinner
  • Holiday Party

The Auxiliary has brought an immense amount of joy and hope to the patients and their children. We invite you to make a difference in the lives of our patients and become a member of the Auxiliary.  Please call Mary Wilkens, current President of the Auxiliary, at (712) 898-2611 or email her at
