Central Alabama Government officials are about to initiate financial support for sexual and domestic assault victims. The donation totals around $3,7m, being able to cover the extensive area including Butler, Autauga, Crenshaw, Montgomery, Chilton, Lowndes, Dallas, Elmore, Wilcox Counties and Perry.
This Wednesday, Governor Kay Ivey announced awarding a considerable grant to support nonprofit organizations working with those affected by domestic assault and violence in Alabama. The donation will be transferred to the Family Sunshine Center, located in Montgomery, Alabama.
Ivey mentioned that it is very important to work with the victims to make sure that they are provided with 24/7 assistance on a daily basis.
“I commend the Crisis Center’s staff for their dedication to those in need, and I am pleased to award this grant to help them continue their important work,” Governor mentioned.
Among the services the Support Center provides, it’s important to mention emergency housing, counseling, doctor’s examination, forensic exam, providing 24/7 crisis guidance and others.
People experiencing physical and emotional abuse need to feel safe and protected. In Alabama, this crisis is more tangible than in neighboring states, that’s why the measure must be taken fast.
