Domestic Abuse Intervention Services (or DAIS) believes that a world free from violence is possible. We work to make Dane County, WI, a safer, more just, more equitable place for people who have experienced domestic violence, their children, and the people who love them.
DAIS, helping Dane County since 1977, strives to empower those affected by domestic violence by advocating for social change through support, education, and outreach. To make this happen, we offer a wide array of crisis intervention and community education/prevention programs, including a 24-hour Help Line, programming for children from violent homes, legal advocacy, support groups, and emergency safety planning. DAIS is also the only domestic violence shelter in all of Dane County.
DAIS is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. We receive funding from a variety of sources, including private contributions, The Dane County Department of Human Services, City of Madison Community Services, City of Madison CDBG, Wisconsin Department of Children and Families, and VOCA.
