Summer Newsletter from Wisconsin

The Rose Home The Rose Home has been in full swing all summer! The girls and coaches have been continuing their day-to-day activities, such as therapy and goal setting. The garden has continued to be a wonderful addition to The Rose Home. The girls have been able to harvest, prepare, and eat plenty of organic cucumbers, onions, zucchini, and jalapenos. There are also tomatoes, broccoli, and four tiny watermelons! The girls take great pride in their urban garden. The ladies at The Rose Home took a day trip up north to Camp Bird, where they enjoyed some group activities and team-building exercises. They did “trust falls” from about a 5ft tall tree stump.

Operation Knightmare

  Eye Heart World was recently asked to be a part of an operation with local, state, and federal authorities, including Wisconsin Department of Justice – Division of Criminal Investigation. We agreed to send members of our outreach team to assist with any women or girls that needed help.

The name of the operation was significant to the officers that planned it. They took the time to identify the purpose of the operation and why each person asked to participate was so important. The command of the operation, Special Agent Carl G. Waterstreet made sure...

Operation Cross Country

Last week we participated alongside Green Bay law enforcement in Operation Cross Country 10 - an annual, nationwide operation conducted by the FBI. We had five Outreach Team members that were on-call to meet with victims who wanted help over a period of three days over a period of three days.
