Collaborative Effort To Prevent Domestic Abuse

21-Aug-2014

The Exchange Club of Fond du Lac and Agnesian HealthCare’s Domestic Violence Services are collaborating to create a new prevention education position to help educate area school systems, local human/health services agencies, and the community on domestic violence and child abuse.

Domestic violence impacts Fond du Lac County in many ways - increasing healthcare costs, threatening community safety, decreasing work productivity, creating a rise in homelessness and endangering youth who experience violence within the home. Domestic violence prevention education (addressing physical, verbal and emotional abuse) is a key piece to stopping the cycle of abuse. Prevention education is also essential to reducing child abuse by bringing awareness to abusive behavior and teaching children how to protect themselves against those who abuse them. Agnesian HealthCare and Exchange Club of Fond du Lac members recently came together to sign an official memorandum of understanding that formally bonds both agencies together in the undertaking of this new role serving our community.
