Everyone deserves to reach their full potential. Everyone deserves a safe, loving home. That is why I volunteer. I want all the women who experiance violence to know that we, as a community, care for her and are there for her...we want her to reach her full potential-however she may describe it. DAIS provides the love, safety, and reality of "next step" planning for people to get into a safe, secure life pattern.

This is an organization that does terrific work day in and day out, but is stressed from too much demand for its services. It is a place of safety, comfort, and new beginnings. I am proud to be on its board even though it means learning things about your community and humanity that you find personally challenging. Volunteering for and supporting DAIS is very rewarding, because they are making a difference and changing lives of victims and future generations.

I am just beginning to get acquainted with this organization and am totally impressed. I am serving on the board of trustees where our primary purpose is to increase DAIS awareness and donations, furthering our reach. The need is definitely greater than the funds, but everyone is working so positively to enact change one step at a time. The staff & volunteers work with very limited resources to make unbelievably positive & measurable differences for people in the Madison community. I am honored & excited to be a part of helping people change their lives for the better.

Domestic Abuse Intervention Services has provided vital services to the community for over 30 years. Their work helping victims of domestic violence and educating the community on the impact of Domestic Violence has been wonderful. I have found the staff to be dedicated and professional, they are truly helping people deal with the trauma of DV. Please help DAIS work towards an end to Domestic Violence in our community.
