Safe Homes gets Mary Kay Foundation grant

NEWBURGH – Safe Homes of Orange County received a $20,000 grant from the Mary Kay Foundation’s annual shelter grants program to further the organization’s efforts to combat domestic violence and provide culturally-appropriate, comprehensive services in the county.  The grant is part of $3 million in funding the foundation has awarded this year to 150 domestic violence shelters nationwide.

Safe Homes of Orange County will use the funding to provide support for its emergency shelter program for victims of domestic violence in accessing safety and culturally-appropriate advocacy services.

“The fact that shelters across the country can use these unrestricted funds to best fit their immediate needs has often made the difference between keeping the doors open or closed, maintaining a critical service or providing a life-saving place for a family in need,” said Anne Crews, board member for the Mary Kay Foundation and vice president of public affairs for Mary Kay Inc.
