I am very honored to provide this small service(cleaning)to DAIS. Although I know that the staff has to meet challenging circumstances on a daily basis, they still manage to maintain a professional and positive attitude. This past year was particularly traumatic with several high-profile cases of domestic violence in Dane County including the murder of two mothers and their daughters. Although the staff was deeply affected, they continued to provide the support, information and comfort so needed by victims of domestic abuse. Yesterday there was an article in the local paper (Wisconsin State Journal)about the huge increase in the number of people seeking DAIS services. I know that even with its limited resources, DAIS will continue to try to meet that need with knowledge and compassion.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
learning from friends and family members who now "get" what domestic abuse is because of DAIS outreach efforts.
