(THREE RIVERS) – A St. Joseph County organization has received part of a grant.
In recognition of Domestic Violence Awareness Month, Domestic and Sexual Abuse Services was notified they are one of 44 domestic violence shelters to get a portion of $400,000 in grants from the DTE Energy Foundation.
In their media release, DTE Energy Foundation says the shelters may use the funds to not only support critical services but also to provide the necessary training for the organizations to ensure future viability.
Trevor Lauer, President of DTE Electric, says these grants will help thousands of people fleeing from violence, including more than 5,000 children, with both emergency housing and support services to help rebuild their lives. Lauer says these grants will help provide critical services from finding employment and permanent housing to opening a bank account.
Equally important, Lauer says these programs help survivors navigate what can be a very complex criminal justice system.
