Community events are vital for DAIS and the awareness and financial assistance raised through these events help us to offer critical services to domestic violence victims and their children.  They also strengthen the public’s ability to recognize and counteract domestic violence’s far-reaching effects.

If you are interested in hosting an event for DAIS please take a look at our Community Event Toolkit and contact Sheba at or 608-807-4021.
