Gov’t boosts funding for women affected by violence

Some extra funding has been announced for four local groups that respond to violence against women and children.

Organizations in Nelson, Kaslo, Salmo, and Creston will share in the $112,000 from the provincial government.

Amy Taylor of the Advocacy Centre in Nelson says although they haven’t decided exactly how their $10,000 share will be spent, it will help with front-line service delivery.

She says it’s something organizations like theirs have long been calling for given high demand for their services.

The Advocacy Centre runs a community-based program for victims of relationship, family, and sexual violence.

North Kootenay Lake Community Services in Kaslo, Creston Valley Community Services and Salmo Community Services will also benefit.
