Victims of domestic abuse can turn to Help of Door County

Help of Door County is reaching out to victims of domestic abuse that may feel there is no place to turn.  Milly Gonzales, executive director of Help of Door County, says making the decision to remove oneself from an abusive relationship can be tough for those victimized, especially when children are involved.  Gonzales advises victims not to hesitate, and to get out of an abusive situation immediately.  She says Help of Door County is available at any time. 

 

 

Gonzales notes that victims will need to consult an attorney, but that Help of Door County advocates are available 24/7 to help with safety plans and moving forward.  She says family court will ultimately determine custody, but it is important to contact Help of Door County as they can assist the family in getting restraining orders to deal with threats.  October is National Domestic Violence Awareness month.  You can listen to the entire interview with Milly Gonzales on the podcast page
