EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) Advocates and survivors of domestic violence gathered in Eau Claire Wednesday.

They announced a new plan for domestic abuse services in Wisconsin.

They group gathered at the Bolton Refuge House facility on Farwell Street.

The long range plan calls for greater investment in support for abuse victims and their children.

Pat Stein with the Bolton Refuge house says prevention is key in stopping domestic abuse.

"We have to be able to be responsive, cause the one thing we do know that if you don't catch them early enough, it'll cycle into an adult relationship, ultimately, resulting in a domestic situation," explains Stein.

Stein says another important key in preventing domestic abuse is enhancing safety.
