Sensitivity warning: This podcast contains references to instances of domestic abuse, sexual assault, and violence.  Please take whatever precautions necessary to protect yourself emotionally and psychologically. 

If you are experiencing violence, please call the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-SAFE (7233), 1-800-787-3224 (TTY), Sojourner Family Peace Center’s 24-hour hotline at  414-933-2722, or The Women's Center 24-Hour Hotline at 262.542.3828 or 888.542.3828.

October is Domestic Violence Awareness month. At United Way of Greater Milwaukee & Waukesha County, we are proud to partner with local programs that help survivors of violence get the resources they need to live safe and healthy lives.

Recently, we had the privilege of sitting down with leaders of three local agencies offering services to survivors across our four-county region with the idea of creating a video. The conversations were so powerful and there was so much that we couldn’t fit into the 4 minute video that we knew we wanted to create a podcast episode dedicated to sharing their words.

Looking to get involved? If your workplace runs a United Way campaign, please consider making a donation to United Way’s Community Fund this year. If not, you can make your gift here.
