Domestic violence awareness increasing locally

The strides to eliminate domestic violence and abuse in Door County is ongoing, as Help of Door County has seen a huge increase in awareness as their client numbers continue to grow.  Executive Director Steve Vickman says he does not believe that means that there is more domestic violence in the area, but rather that the proactive approach by Help of Door County and other agencies makes it easier for people to get out of abusive relationships.

 

 

Vickman adds that laws were not put on the books until the 1870’s about domestic violence.  He says this country finally did get serious with laws in the last fifty years, especially with the passage of the Violence Against Women Act in 1994.
