Community Spotlight: Help of Door County impacts community every day

A Door County organization is shedding light on the domestic abuse impacting hundreds of people in Door County every year. October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, and Help of Door County wants to help bring an end to the destructive cycle. Nationally, one in four women and one in seven men are affected by domestic violence, according to Help of Door County Executive Director Milly Gonzales. On average, Help of Door County served at least one person a day last year.

Tracey Robertson, the new Violence Intervention Program Coordinator, says she hopes to increase the community reach and the impact the agency can have in the area.

Help of Door County held a Walk with Me event earlier this month to raise awareness and received a $10,000 grant for the Nations of Neighbors award from Royal Neighbors of America, who honored Gonzales for her work.  You can listen to the entire conversation with Milly and Tracey on the Spotlight on the Community Podcast Page.
