Massachusetts YWCA awarded domestic violence grant

The Justice Department recently awarded a grant of $300,000 from the Office of Violence Against Women to the western Massachusetts chapter of the YWCA to help them in their fight against domestic violence. The six-figure grant was written in collaboration with Community Grants Association and gives the organization the funds to continue providing services to women and children who have been victimized by domestic violence. Some of the funded programs include counseling for mental health, substance abuse, job readiness training, crisis intervention and case management.

It is an interesting quirk to divorce law that can be beneficial for someone going through divorce, or a pain for someone going through a divorce.
