Family Services of Tulare County has been awarded an $11,000 grant to provide financial and career development workshops for survivors of domestic violence.
The California Partnership to End Domestic Violence, a statewide domestic violence coalition, said Friday that the Tulare nonprofit agency was one of three organizations selected this year for B.O.S.S. Economic Empowerment grants.
The B.O.S.S. program --Building Opportunities for Survivors' Success -- is an initiative designed to help domestic violence service providers help survivors in achieving the financial stability necessary to keep their families safe.
With the grant, Family Services of Tulare County hopes to provide financial and career development services to 200 people in the coming year, said executive director Caity Meader.
Shelter Outreach Plus in Monterey County and RISE in San Luis Obispo also were grant recipients. The grants were made possible by the Allstate Foundation.
