Host an Event for DAIS


Events hosted by members of our community are vital for DAIS. Many people don’t know about the array of services that DAIS offers, and they are also unaware of the prevalence of domestic violence in Dane County. You can help us raise awareness and financial assistance by having a casual event at your home or business. A DAIS staff member would gladly attend to help you spread the word.


If you are interested in hosting an event for DAIS, see our Community Event Toolkit and contact Katie Danforth at or call 608-251-1237 ext. 308
