The Attica, Covington, and Southeast Fountain Community Foundations recently awarded $1,000 each, for a total grant of $3,000 to the Valley Oaks - Beyond the Violence Program.
According to Lori Webb, program coordinator, in a news release, “Our goals is to address the need for our students in Fountain County to be able to differentiate what a healthy and unhealthy relationship is and to possibly be able to help a friend or family member escape a violent situation by providing tools and resources in the community to seek help safely.”
Dale White, CEO of the Community Foundation said, “The Community Foundation has been a long-time supporter of the Beyond the Violence Program. Anything that we can do to limit the destructive nature of domestic abuse we want to be a part of. We think its money well spent.”
