The Verizon Foundation has awarded $12,520 to the Crystal Judson Family Justice Center to fund mental health counseling and support groups for clients.
The Verizon Foundation invests in organizations that provide education, prevention, care and empowerment resources for victims of domestic violence.
“We are very thankful for the continued support of the Verizon Foundation. They are committed to giving back to the community by supporting programs such as ours," said Rick Talbert, a Pierce County Councilmember and chair of the center's Executive Board. "Support groups and counseling play a vital role in helping clients move past the abuse to lives of safety and stability. With the generous support of the Verizon Foundation we will continue to provide these much needed services to some of the most vulnerable members of our community.”
Established in 2005 through an agreement between Pierce County and the City of Tacoma, the Crystal Judson Family Justice Center serves the needs of domestic violence victims and their children by providing comprehensive victim services in a central, safe location. The center is named in honor of the late Crystal Judson Brame. More information is available at www.aplaceofhelp.org.
