Domestic abuse happens. Even here in Brown County, Wisconsin. Last year, county law enforcement responded to almost 900 reported incidents of domestic violence. Many times, people just don’t know where to find help or are too scared to act. At the same time, family, friends or others may see signs of domestic abuse but are unsure what actions, if any, they can take.
Led by community leaders and organizations, the Be Safe campaign seeks to reach those dealing with domestic violence by offering a free, local resource — a phone number to call or click — when you need help.
All calls go to Golden House, the county’s only comprehensive domestic violence program, which will connect callers with the resources and assistance needed to be safe. This campaign provides resources for family, friends and co-workers concerned about loved ones dealing with potential threats of domestic violence. Reach out so more people dealing with domestic violence can find safe, local support.
