Domestic and sexual violence groups to share federal funds

Print More

Three groups working to stem the tide of domestic and sexual violence in Vermont have received a big boost: a total of $1.55 million in federal grants.

Have Justice Will Travel, based in Vershire, Chelsea-based Safeline and WomanSafe — which is based in Middlebury — each is receiving roughly a third of the money.

The groups work to provide legal and social support to women who have been victims of domestic and sexual violence.

The money is being made available under legislation authored by Vermont U.S. Sen. Patrick Leahy in 1994 and reauthorized last year.
