A local advocacy group is working to stem the increase of domestic assaults in the community. Help of Door County is still offering services 24/7 for victims of domestic abuse. Despite closed offices to the public, victims can reach out anytime for emergency appointments with a staff member from Help of Door County. Executive Director Milly Gonzales says during this time of Safer at Home, the most vulnerable are at a higher risk. She notes that Help of Door County is just a call away.
Gonzales notes that April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month and that intimate partners can use abuse to intimidate, control, and demean victims of domestic violence. You can find more information on crisis intervention and services proved by Help of Door County with this story
