WISE works to support families that have been disrupted when one parent has been abusive. We recognize that children heal and thrive when they have a strong relationship with the non-abusive parent and we work to provide families with information and resources on the effects of domestic violence on children, and how to rebuild families after abuse.
WISE has a full time Domestic Violence Specialist co-located at the Department of Children, Youth and Families in New Hampshire to provide training and consultation for child protective service workers, and support families in which there is both domestic and child abuse.
WISE staff are mandated reporters under New Hampshire state law, and are obligated to report suspected child abuse or neglect. Advocates can talk with you about what a report may mean, and can provide brainstorming around hypothetical situations if you have questions.
