Each year, Wild Iris serves hundreds of Mono Countyâ€™s most vulnerable residents: those who are victims of domestic violence. The numbers continue to grow for individuals seeking our services, and sadly, the increase in numbers includes more and more victims under the age of 18, according to the chamber.
