HELP of Door County, Inc. will be starting up its Healthy Relationships support group just in time for the holiday season. Beginning Monday, December 3rd, group will be held on Monday evenings from 6:00-7:30 pm.
The group will be facilitated by Mary Cram of Door County. Mary graduated from Sturgeon Bay High School in 1980 and from UW-Stevens Point in 1985 (BS - Lifestyle/Wellness Management and Adaptive Physical Education).
Mary has been active in the Door County community for many years and is no stranger to helping victims in the area. She has been a Victim Advocate for the Sexual Assault Center, served on the Advisory Board and Coach for Special Olympics, is a member of the Jaycees, Leadership Door County Class of '97, Opening Doors Youth Conference committee, Kimberley House Board, and has worked with adults as a Supported Employment Specialist and Wellness Coordinator.
In Waupaca County, Mary worked for the County Health and Human Services Department as Coordinator of the Women's Support Network to develop a program to provide county women the best possible chance for recovery from issues relating to substance abuse, poverty and domestic violence. She also created an action plan of hotline and referral services, public information and educational programs.
Since moving back to Door County two years ago, Mary's been active in other community groups such as Altrusa International, Coordinated Community Response team to Domestic Abuse and Sexual Assault, and as a board member of the Volunteer Center of Door County.
She's interested in community issues and helping others and is looking forward to facilitating this group for HELP of Door County, Inc.
