DeKalb District 7 Commissioner Cochran-Johnson Grants $50,000 to the Women's Resource Center to End
"To champion the efforts of the Women’s Resource Center to End Domestic Violence (WRCDV) and in honor of October being Domestic Violence Awareness Month, DeKalb County’s Super District 7 Commissioner Lorraine Cochran-Johnson has given the organization a $50,000 grant to be used for emergency and long-term housing for survivors of domestic violence."
“'We’ve seen a dramatic increase in the need for our housing services over the past year,' shared Jean Douglas, executive director of Women’s Resource Center. 'While we support survivors throughout metro Atlanta, we were founded with seed funding from DeKalb County, who recognized the urgent need for services for our community. Commissioner Cochran-Johnson’s generous grant highlights the continued support of DeKalb County and County leaders’ commitment to our work to end domestic violence and support our neighbors who are impacted by abuse.'”
