LATEST SENATOR TESTER
(U.S. Senate) - U.S. Senator Jon Tester announced today that Carbon County's Domestic and Sexual Violence Services will receive $349,986 to support its transitional housing program for survivors of domestic violence.
"These resources will provide a safe home for women and children in their darkest hour," said Tester. "As we all work to reduce these heinous crimes, these grants go a long way in providing security for survivors and their families."
The funding comes from the U.S. Department of Justice's Office on Violence Against Women and is specifically allocated to provide victims of sexual assault, domestic violence, and their families with temporary housing as they receive assistance in their search for more permanent refuge.
