A New Chapter for The Women’s Home


It is with joy and gratitude that we celebrate Paula Paust and her 25 years of unparalleled service to The Women’s Home. Paula’s leadership and commitment to The Home have created a solid foundation upon which the organization has flourished and expanded, and we are now able to serve more women and their families than ever before.  We wish her well in her retirement and will always be grateful for her tireless, loving efforts to ensure that The Home and its clients thrive. 


We are proud to announce Anna Dragsbaek as The Women’s Home’s new Chief Executive Officer.  Anna brings with her many years of non-profit experience and a passion for empowering families. With a background in social work, public health and law, she believes in the power of women to build healthy families and strong communities. Anna is honored to continue the legacy of The Home, helping women in crisis regain their self-esteem and dignity.  We warmly welcome her family into ours. 

As we celebrate the 60th anniversary of The Women’s Home, we are in the midst of an exciting time of growth and change. With the addition of the Adele and Ber Pieper Family Place and in 2017, the Mabee WholeLife® Service Center, we are expanding into new areas of service. With the ongoing support of our community, The Women’s Home is poised to impact more lives than ever. 

Give a Gift to Honor Paula’s Legacy!
