Finding a safe place to live after experiencing domestic violence is a challenge if you are in the process of transitioning out of an abusive relationship. The Help of Door County has been busier than usual, helping those who have suffered domestic abuse find refuge. Executive Director Milly Gonzales says the Transitional Living Program helps victims get out of an abusive situation for themselves and their families.
Gonzales says the program helps pay for the first month of rent, 75 percent of the second month, 50 percent for the third month, and 25 percent for the fourth month. The support is based on available funds, and Gonzales says the Women’s Fund of Door County has generously given an $11,000 grant towards the Transitional Living Program.
