ABOUT 5-STONES DODGE COUNTY
Tracy Scheffler, Founder of 5-Stones Dodge County, is part of a team that has been studying, researching, and learning about human trafficking for seven+ years in Dodge County and the surrounding areas. She is a member of the Madison Anti-Trafficking Consortium, has a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology, and works in the local school system.
The 5-Stones Dodge County team consists of 10-15 volunteers from the local community. 5-Stones Dodge County works tirelessly to educate youth and adults regarding trafficking; presenting in schools, youth groups, churches, medical facilities, community organizations, and social service groups. Their motivation is moral outrage at the perpetuation of the crime of trafficking against our youth and young adults.
5-Stones fights the giant of sex trafficking through Awareness, Prevention, Education, Networking, and Collaboration, partnering with other organizations and our community to bring safety through knowledge and action.
5-Stones is a non-profit organization which was established in Appleton, WI in 2010. 5-Stones Dodge County (formerly 5-Stones Beaver Dam) was subsequently founded by Tracy Scheffler in collaboration with Appleton in 2013. 5-Stones Dodge County functions independently as well as collaboratively with 5-Stones Fox Valley and is a non-profit currently hosted by Harvest EFC as a community effort.
