Help of Door County helping with ACE's

A Door County non-profit is trying to help children deal with adverse childhood experiences (ACE’s). Help of Door County is trying to build a better community to help out children who may be witnesses to domestic violence and other traumatic experiences. Steve Vickman, Executive Director of Help of Door County, says children who have ACE’s can carry all sorts of mental, emotional and even physical problems in adulthood. Vickman notes the importance of making sure kids get the emotional support they need when going through something like domestic violence.



Vickman added kids who experience ACEs have a higher likelihood of developing alcoholism, drug use, depression and early heart disease.
