A ‘Do for DAIS

A 'Do for DAISAt RZ & Company, we are incredibly grateful to be a part of the vibrant Madison community. We believe our community role extends beyond the salon doors, into the lives and work of the people and organizations responsible for making Madison and Dane County a fantastic place to not just live, but thrive. Which is why we are proud to partner with Domestic Abuse Intervention Services (DAIS), to raise awareness about and funding for the organization’s services. From March 15-21 RZ & Company will participate in A ‘Do for DAIS to help end domestic violence. Purple and violet fun strands will be available for $12 each. Sass up your ‘do with just one or a dozen fun strands and show support the DAIS mission. All proceeds directly benefit DAIS programming.

DAIS has served Dane County as the only emergency domestic violence shelter since 1977. In August 2014, the organization made the switch from a confidential to a public location, opening the doors to a new home at 2102 Fordem Avenue . This move provides more than double the housing capacity from 25 to 56 beds and creates ample space for programming.

DAIS works daily toward achieving the organization’s vision for “A nonviolent community that actively promotes safety, peace, justice and hope.” To this end, a wide array of crisis intervention and community education/prevention programs are offered, including a 24-hour Help Line, programming for children from violent homes, legal advocacy, support groups, emergency safety planning, and the only domestic violence shelter for all of Dane County. Recent reports indicate that this vision is being realized. In 2013 The Children’s Program served 235 children, a 10 percent increase from 2012. More than 8,450 calls were made to the help line, 1,180 of which were made by people who had never before reached out. With the increased resources and capacities of their new home, we trust DAIS’s positive impact on the Madison and Dane County communities will only increase.
