Help fund PADA
Editor, Daily Union: I read the well-written story about PADA (People Against Domestic and Sexual Abuse) with growing concern.
It is true, as its accountant, James Berndsen said, “We deal with such a horrible truth that abuse can affect every single race, gender, age and demographic.”
The unsettling aspect of this is that the need of these individuals seems to be growing while, at the same time, funds to support the agency are dropping. PADA does a remarkable service and steps up at a crucial time of need for those traumatized by abuse.
I encourage government officials (city, county, state and federal) to see PADA as the vital link for many that it is. — S.A. Welch, Fort Atkinson.
