Help of Door County stressing healthy relationships and education

Learning to set down healthy boundaries in a relationship can go a long way in protecting yourself from domestic violence, according to an advocate for victims of abuse.  Help of Door County Executive Director Milly Gonzales says her organization has seen an increase in strangulations, restraining orders, and direct services this past summer.  She says a prevention piece that is imperative, starts with having a healthy conversation, especially with teenagers.



Gonzales adds that Help of Door County does community outreach for children as young as seven to ten years old who are involved in the “Sparks” program, while 11 to 13-year-olds participate in the “Flames” group.  She notes that high schoolers can develop leadership skills by joining the FYRE (Forging Youth Relationships and Education) program.

To kick off Domestic Violence Awareness Month in October, Help of Door County is hosting the  4th Annual "Walk with Me" which honors survivors of domestic violence.  The event will be held at Martin Park in Sturgeon Bay on Wednesday, October 4th.
