MADISON (WKOW) -- State officials, along with End Domestic Abuse Wisconsin, released their long range plan for domestic abuse services on Wednesday.

The plan is titled "Vision. Hope. Safety." and it emphasizes the need to maintain and expand the network of shelters and service providers that currently exists in Wisconsin.

"We can all be proud of the progress that we have made in Wisconsin over the years to address issues of domestic violence, but much work remains to be done," Ellen Allen, with Hope House in Baraboo, said.

The plan is intended to guide state and local governments, non-governmental funding and the victim advocacy field until 2020.
