About Us

HELP of Door County provides services and programs throughout the Door County Peninsula to victims of domestic abuse. We work to improve the well-being and dignity of individuals, families, and intimate relationships. We do this by supporting and enhancing their strengths to reduce the incidence of violence and conflict within their relationships. HELP does not provide counseling but we are here to listen without judgment, support without blaming, and empower victims through advocacy and information. Due to the generosity of our community, all victim services are free and confidential.

Our Executive Director

Milly Gonzales currently resides in Southern Door with her husband Rudy and family. They came to Door County seeking an amazing place where they could raise their children. Almost 11 years later they can’t imagine living anywhere else, and are proud to call Door County, home. For the past 3 years she has worked as an Advocate and Domestic Violence Coordinator for HELP of Door County. Previous to that she sat on HELP’s board and as Vice-Chair, as well as managed a Transitional Living Program for a Domestic Violence Agency in IL. In 2018 Milly was honored with The Anne Kok Social Justice Award. This year Milly was named one of Wisconsin’s 35 most powerful and influential Latino’s and recognized for the Si Se Puede Awards at this year’s Wisconsin Leadership Summit.
