Shedding light on domestic violence

A local organization that advocates for victims of domestic abuse is on a crusade to educate the

community.  Help of Door County Executive Director Milly Gonzales says a 24-hour hotline is available as well as immediate services for those in need of help.



Help of Door County also provides legal advocacy.   Gonzales says that means giving moral support during family court appointments and assisting in the restraining order process.  The U.S. Department of Justice estimates that there are over 2 million victims of physical violence perpetrated by a partner every year.  Help of Door County offers preventative programs as well as crisis intervention.  October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
