DOMESTIC ABUSE INTERVENTION SERVICES
May 14, 2010

Domestic Abuse Intervention Services is an organization that strives to empower women by providing services and support they might not otherwise receive when facing the challenges that come with domestic violence. I started volunteering last October, and I have seen the broad reach of the organization's positive influence. Whether through advocacy, the shelter, the Crisis Line, the Crisis Response program, support groups, legal assistance, the Kid's program, and its extensive volunteer training program, DAIS is truly working to make positive changes in the lives of its clients, its staff, and the community writ large.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

interacting with women in the shelter and on the Crisis Line. Women have thanked me for providing an attentive, kind ear when they felt like no one else was there to listen.

More feedback

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

learning about the experience of domestic violence and helping women through the challenges it presents. interacting with the diverse clients, volunteers, and staff. empowering women!

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

kind, supportive, patient, informed, eager to help in any way they could.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

purchase an even larger space to accommodate the need for shelter in Dane County.
