Marshfield Clinic supports Tri-County Council

Marshfield Clinic recently contributed $500 to the Tri-County Council on Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault.

Funds received from area businesses help with critical prevention and support programming, as well as ongoing operational costs of the shelter, said Shellie Holmes, executive director, Tri-County Council on Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault.

The agency provides advocacy assistance to more than 500 victims of domestic violence and/or sexual assault each year, Holmes said. Advocacy includes, among other things, crisis counseling, support and information surrounding court processes, support groups, information and referral to other community resources, emergency transportation, and help with restraining orders, she said.

"We also have a 'safe home' that last year provided over 1,300 nights of shelter to women, children, men, elderly and disabled clients," she said. "In addition, we provide a 24-hour crisis hotline service."

"Since we live in a small and relatively peaceful community, it's easy to assume that these things don't happen here, or that they happen to other people. The truth is, it happens more frequently than we're often willing to admit," said Rick Clark, administrator, Marshfield Clinic Minocqua Center. "The clinic feels a deep sense of community obligation to support programs like the Tri-County Council on Domestic Violence. This program helps to educate and shelter people in need and, hopefully, reduces the amount of domestic violence and sexual assault in our community."
