Families in the Salt Lake area will have just a little bit more help after the YWCA announced that it won a substantial grant.
The $49,782 one-year grant was announced Wednesday and comes from the Avon Foundation for Women. According to YWCA marketing and communication manager Mike Varanakis, the money will be used to create a new position at the Salt Lake Area Family Justice Center (SLAFJC). The new hire will help women impacted by domestic violence become economically self-sufficient, obtain housing and access other resources.
The Utah Domestic Violence Council invites you to remember those who lost their lives as a result of domestic violence in the last 12 months in our state.
Please join us on 2nd January 2013 at the State Capitol Building in the Rotunda area at 12 pm. We welcome members from all communities and faith groups to reflect on an issue which cuts across all cultural and spiritual divides and which we must come together to address.
