Four Domestic Violence Service Organizations Receive State Grants

Four Domestic Violence Service Organizations Receive State Grants

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, and the City of Rio Rancho is hosting a barbecue to raise funds and attention to this epidemic.

"We exist, and if there are problems in your relationship that include violence, that is not okay", says New Hope Director Suzi Fode.

"It's an unyielding effort by all of our community, domestic violence programs, elected leaders, and appointed leaders to make sure that the community understands we have to be vigilant and attentive, and we have to be responsive to the problem", said Nanci Kreidman, Domestic Violence Action Center CEO.

The organizations offers crisis intervention with trained staff members who listen and help victims with safety planning and advocates that are trained to help with safety, empowerment, education and access to resources.

These are some of the warning signs of domestic abuse.

They have information and referrals for other services such as legal service, financial help, counseling, housing, employment and medical care. They are hoping to get Tarleton involved by having as many Texans wear purple as possible.

Southcentral Foundation has a program called Family Wellness Warriors Initiative, which is centered around the idea that Domestic Violence can be ended in this generation. Winners will be chosen each week and prizes have been donated by KDRM and KBSN.

Chandler's cousin, Natasha Morton, recalled the tragic events of March 10, when family members endured a hostage situation for nearly nine hours before Chandler was killed in a domestic incident during a standoff in Henrico.

Thousands of dollars in in state grants are going toward helping victims of domestic abuse in the Southern Tier.
