PITTSBURG, KS.--- Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt announces a $73,500 grant for the Safehouse Crisis Center in Pittsburg. The organization is using the money for its victims service programs. $23,000 will be used to provide effective leadership and services during child exchanges and monitoring visitations, at the Pittsburg and Coffeyville Child Exchange and Visitation centers. The remaining funds will provide shelter and advocacy services to victims of domestic violence, sexual assault and stalking in Southeast Kansas.
"Without this funding, we wouldn't be able to continue to provide the programs and services that we provide each year. So, we're very pleased for the continued support of the Attorney General's Office," said Rebecca Brubaker, Safehouse Director.
Brubaker also stated the center won't be opening any new programs in the coming year. They are just thankful they can continue to provide the services they provide.
