Like many other area non-profit organizations, Help of Door County has felt the impact of the health crisis on their operations. Executive Director Milly Gonzales says the advocate for abuse victims reopened its doors last week to the public as domestic violence has reportedly seen a spike nationally. Gonzales is amazed at the support given by so many.
Gonzales credits the Door County Emergency Response Fund provided by the Door County Community Foundation and United Way to help her organization navigate the financial challenges brought on by the pandemic. Help of Door County offers free and confidential services to victims of domestic abuse.
