DV Shelter Grant

An Otsego County organization that combats domestic violence and provides rehabilitation services is awarded a grant from the Mary Kay Foundation.

The Violence Intervention Program at Opportunities for Otsego has received a $20,000 – part of $3 million awarded to 150 domestic violence shelters nationwide.

Program officials plan to use the money for repairs and renovations to its circa 1900 residence used as the county safe house for victims of violence.

It will enhance the ability of the Violence Intervention Program to provide a safe and supportive environment to facilitate the recovery of women and children seeking shelter.
