Local domestic violence impacted by COVID-19 ramifications

The COVID-19 pandemic may be increasing domestic violence, and child abuse as more Americans are staying home for their safety.  Help of Door County Executive Director Milly Gonzales says her organization initially received a spike of calls from pressured victims in unhealthy relationships.  

 


Gonzales says national directors have told her that overall call numbers were slightly down in early April, but sexual assaults reported to law enforcement have increased.  You can find more information on services provided by Help of Door County with the link below.
