Domestic Abuse Intervention Services (DAIS) will host its first-ever Community Resource Fair on Sunday, Oct. 22, 11 a.m.-2 p.m. featuring local community providers who support the health and well-being of families and individuals in Dane County.
DAIS works to make Dane County a safer, more just, and more equitable place for people who have experienced domestic violence, their children, and the people who love them.
This city-wide collaborative event will highlight partnerships and collaborations among various providers who collectively provide a full continuum of services to enhance individual, family, and community well-being, according to a press release from DAIS, and is being held as a part of their outreach initiative for Domestic Violence Awareness Month which aims to create a safe, family-centered space that celebrates the larger community.
”We hope people will join us for a fun, family-friendly community resource fair and celebration,” said Kalli Anderson, DAIS co-organizer and staff legal advocate. “There will be yard games, face painting, food vendors, live music, and more. It’s a great way to learn about the many organizations working collaboratively in Dane County to advance a community that actively promotes safety, peace, justice, and hope, while enjoying family-friendly activities and entertainment.”
“We are so excited and grateful that more than 20 local organizations will be coming out to share information about their services and ways the community can get involved,” added Ayden Romer, a youth violence prevention advocate and the event’s other co-organizer. “People can learn not only about resources they can access but also how they can get involved by volunteering or supporting these amazing partners of ours.”
Domestic Abuse Intervention Services is located at 2102 Fordem Avenue. For more information about the Community Resource Fair, click here.
