Domestic Abuse Transitional Living Fund
Thelma Windhauser Endowment Fund
Help of Door County, Inc. Fund Established by Connie and Bob Erickson
The mission of HELP of Door County is to eliminate domestic abuse through prevention and intervention services and to advocate for social change. Domestic abuse may include emotional, sexual, physical, verbal, and/or financial abuse using the tactics of blaming, intimidation, coercion, threats, minimizing, isolation, and denial to control and manipulate victims in an intimate or dating relationship. Domestic abuse is a crime.
HELP provides intervention and prevention services to victims of domestic abuse. Services include but are not limited to: case management; legal advocacy; Women and Children’s Educational and Support Group; Transitional Living Program; Emergency Victim Assistance Fund; Visitation and Exchange Program; Alternatives to Violence Program (includes the men’s ATV and the women’s WEAV programs); community outreach, and a 24-hour domestic abuse hotline. HELP provides services at a main office in Sturgeon Bay and a satellite office in Sister Bay.
