Oct 24, 2022 12:03 pm

Liz Montgomery reports in Porcupine Soup that Community Action of Greene County is getting a $50,000 grant to fix up a safe house for domestic violence victims. The State and Municipal Facilities Capital Program funding will replace damaged windows and decayed siding and maintain the safety of the building, the location of which is secret to protect those staying there. Florence Ohle, executive director of Community Action of Greene County, said, “Survivors and their children coming to us for residential services deserve to be met in safe, welcoming spaces, and this grant will see that that is a reality now." Community Action’s domestic violence services include the safe house, transitional apartment housing, and assistance with obtaining orders of protection, social and supportive services, accompaniment to court proceedings, and counseling. Community Action's help is free and confidential, and anyone in need of assistance can call the organization’s 24-hour hotline at 518-943-9211. Read more about this story at Porcupine Soup.
