October is Domestic Abuse Awareness month. Though many may think that domestic violence does not happen in central Wisconsin, the truth is that eight people died last year due to domestic violence in Wood and its surrounding counties.
Each month Shirley’s House of Hope receives approximately 10 calls from women in need of emergency and program shelter due to domestic violence. Over the past six years, Shirley’s House of Hope has rebuilt, renewed, and restored lives of over 300 women and children hurting from domestic violence.
Its doors are open with the help of volunteers who average a total of 250 hours per week. Financial support is provided through donors in the community and through fundraising efforts such as the Marshfield Iron Chef Competition as well as Striking Out Domestic Violence, which will be held on April 30, 2017.
