Domestic Violence Awareness Month 2015

Domestic Violence Awareness Month is a time to reflect on how communities can work together to build healthy, thriving families free from the threat of violence. Individuals and organizations across Wisconsin assist families and children each day by providing safe havens that will lead to brighter futures.

During October, DCF is recognizing the people and groups that work tirelessly to help those who have been victims of domestic abuse and working to prevent future violence in our communities. But they can’t do it alone. Breaking the cycle of violence takes hard work and collaboration of communities. By raising awareness and working together, we can build a brighter future for the children and families of Wisconsin.
