We are reaching out to build a safe and healthy community, free from violence and abuse.

Family violence affects us all… Millions of people are physically, sexually, or emotionally abused every year by someone they know. It happens to people of all ages, races, LGBTQ, religions, income levels, and educational levels. Abuse is never acceptable. Talking with someone about your abuse isn’t easy, but it can help.

Many homeowners in Wisconsin have a long list of outdoor projects that need to be tackled in the spring and summer months. These projects could include anything from a new patio, to installing a fence, to simply planting a garden, shrubs or trees. Diggers Hotline wants you to complete these projects safely. Following these steps will help along the way.
