Help of Door County is looking to have a nationally-renowned documentary movie be the centerpiece of an upcoming discussion on child abuse. Milly Gonzales, the executive director, says the story called “The Trials of Gabriel Fernandez” prompts questions about the system’s protection of vulnerable children. She says that Help of Door County has had many calls regarding the Netflix documentary and the boy’s murder.
Help of Door County works closely with Child Protective Services. Gonzales says if people are triggered by the documentary or have any questions about the red flags that could mean child abuse, they should reach out to Help of Door County.
