This is the Cycle of Abuse that is very apparent in domestic violence relationships.

Tension builds, victims often feel they walk on eggshells not to set their partner off. Then comes the abuse. After the abusive incident comes the honeymoon stage. "I'm sorry." "I didn't mean it. " "I promise it will not happen again." "I'll get help." "I cannot live without you." But eventually the tension builds again.

The time between the honeymoon stage and the tension phase varies. It would be days, weeks or months that things are "good" in the relationship however abuse will happen again.The abuse will become more severe the longer the abuse goes one.

If someone needs help getting out, please know we are here. We can help you create a safety plan to leave and getting you connected to services to help you start over. All our services are free and confidential.

Toll free 24/7 Call us at 800-956-6656 or text us at 906-290-9081.

When we treat domestic violence as a private or family matter that should stay behind closed doors, we make victims feel even more isolated. Survivors shouldn’t have to “go-it-alone.” Do your part to remove the stigma - keep sharing information and resources, and talk about domestic violence with your friends and family. #Every1KnowsSome1 #DVAM

Welcome to Rainbow House

Our History 1978 – Present

Rainbow House has had a long and colorful history. In 1978, a group of women concerned with the increase of domestic violence came together and formed a Task Force to pursue the development of a program. In 1980, the “Rape and Domestic Violence Center” came into being as part of Marinette County Government. At that time, services consisted of an office and several “safe homes”.

The organization operated as an information and referral service for many years prior to acquiring a shelter facility. Historically, the organization provided education and information on stopping the cycle of domestic violence. The center received it’s first funding from the State of Wisconsin in 1982. At that time, a shelter was acquired. The first building was rapidly outgrown, and we moved to our present location in 1984.

At that time, the name was changed to “The Shelter”. The county obtained funding through a WHEDA Grant in 1988 to operate a shelter for domestic abuse. Operation of the program was turned over from Marinette County Health and Human Services to NEWCAP Inc. (North East Wisconsin Community Action Program) on January 1, 1991 for the purposes of providing victims of domestic abuse and sexual assault with a safe and supportive environment.

I have a brand new hardcover (with jacket) children's book that says ages 4-8, that was sent to me by accident from Amazon; I was told just to keep it, donate it, or "whatever". It would make a nice Christmas or Birthday present for a little girl--or just to have when you get little visitors at Rainbow house. Would/do you accept such donations?
