Men who abuse women and even a few women who beat men can find themselves in a lot more trouble than they ever expected, according to a Sturgeon Bay victims advocate organization. With October being National Domestic Violence Awareness Month, Help of Door County is scheduling a special open house. The event will be held at the Help of Door County location on Green Bay Road in Sturgeon Bay and will give people the opportunity to find out more information on domestic abuse and services available in the area. Executive Director Steve Vickman says help is just a phone call away. He adds that the color purple will have significance during a day later in the month.
Vickman says the organization is using facebook, twitter, and Instagram to reach out to more people in Door County as well. You can find out more about the services provided by Help of Door County with this story below.
