Tribal Domestic Abuse Programs
The Lac du Flambeau Statewide Shelter provides safe shelter and supportive services specifically designed to meet the needs of Native American women from all eleven tribes in the state. The program goals are: 1) to educate the community about domestic violence and sexual assault in order to reduce violence against women in Native American communities; 2) to promote physical, spiritual, mental, and emotional well-being; and 3) to encourage cultural and spiritual awareness by incorporating Native American traditional values, beliefs and attitudes into programming. Services provided include a 24-hour crisis line, individual counseling, support groups, legal and other advocacy, transportation to the shelter, community education, and transitional living.
In addition, all tribes in Wisconsin receive funding through the DCF Tribal Family Services Program to provide core domestic abuse services.
