NEW CITY, N.Y. --  The Center For Safeyty & Change is the recipent of a new grant to help survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault and other violent crimes in Rockland.

The New City based organization is receciving $669,997 in federal funding. The funding comes from the Justice for Families Program within the U.S. Department of Justice’s Office on Violence Against Women.

Elizabeth Santiago, executive director of the center, located at 9 Johnsons Lane, said they were excited to have the opportunity to help the victims of domestic violence while holding perpetrators accountable.

This grant will enable us to meet a significant gap within the Latina community by allowing the partners to hire a bilingual attorney, bilingual advocate, bilingual liaison and supervisors for visitation," Santiago said. "In addition, this grant will allow for further court related training for court personnel and attorneys.”

The center plans to use the funding to help survivors of violence by hiring a Spanish speaking bilingual attorney to provide civil legal assistance and providing supervised visitation and safe exchange for families with a history of domestic violence.
