SHARE Inc. has received a $12,000 Daniels Fund grant to support its domestic violence shelter and outreach program.

SHARE, the Morgan County domestic violence program, provides a variety of services to domestic violence victims. Services include 24-hour confidential crisis response, emergency shelter, individual advocacy and support groups for battered women in English and Spanish, children and teen programs for shelter and outreach children, court advocacy for both English- and Spanish-speaking clients, assistance with protection orders and victim compensation, and assistance and referral to other resource agencies within the community.

SHARE also has a two-year transitional housing program for battered women with children and the Safe Haven Supervised Visitation and Safe Exchange Project.

“The Daniels Fund grant will allow us to continue to enhance existing services,” said Director Jacque Morse. “Funds will be used to supplement general operating costs for client expenses and crisis response. The ability to assist families in immediate crisis, as well as provide an avenue for continuing support, dramatically improves their ability to achieve and maintain self-sufficiency.”

The Daniels Fund was established in 1997 by Bill Daniels, a pioneer in cable television known for his kindness and generosity to those in need. For more information about SHARE Inc., call 970-867-4444 or toll-free at 877-867-9590.
