FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
 
Pride Center of Vermont Awarded $300,000 Office of Violence Against Women Grant
 
October 10, 2016, Burlington, VT--- Pride Center of Vermont received its largest grant at the end of September when the Department of Justice’s Office of Violence against Women (OVW) announced it had awarded the Center $300,000 to work with Underserved Populations through 2018.
 
This extremely competitive grant was written by former Executive Director, Kim Fountain. The grant is collaboration with Migrant Justice, H.O.P.E Works, WomenSafe, and Voices Against Violence to reach LGBTQ migrant farmworkers in Addison, Chittenden and Franklin counties who have limited access to services. The goal of this grant is to provide greater connection to all grant partners for LGBTQ migrant farm workers who may be experiencing sexual, domestic and/or intimate partner violence and need support.
 
This two-year grant will create a new position of Sexual Violence Program Coordinator at Pride Center of Vermont. The Coordinator will support and advocate with and for, migrant farm workers, as well as provide assistance and technical trainings for all grant partners.
 
This grant would not be possible without the continued and unwavering support of Senator Leahy, who is fully committed to supporting of victims of violence. It is heartening to have a Senator who so fully understands that LGBTQ communities face obstacles and forms of violence that and result in particular vulnerabilities that must be addressed.
