Grant Allows SLC YWCA to Offer More Support for Domestic Violence Victims
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.
