When you don't know where to turn, there is help.
Domestic Abuse Prevention
Domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking and trafficking know no boundaries. It can happen to anyone. And when it does, you need help — to get out, start over, find answers, know what your options are, or find a network of support. You’re not alone. We’re here to help every woman, child and man in our community who is sexually assaulted, stalked, trafficked, or subjected to emotional, mental, physical, sexual and verbal abuse.
Together with our partners we apply Stanford’s Collective Impact Model (.pdf) to improve the health and safety for all residents in Marathon County. To create long lasting sustainable change, the Community Anti-Drug Coalitions of America (CADCA) suggests utilizing the “7 Strategies for Community Change (.pdf)“. When communities use this approach, the interventions are more well-rounded and complete. This is also an excellent way to create plans of action on how to reach long-term goals to impact a host of problems negatively affecting the community.
