Dallas Women’s Foundation Grant Awarded To Denton County Friends Of The Family

Denton County Friends of the Family (DCFOF) will be receiving $30,000 in grant funding from Dallas Women’s Foundation in the upcoming calendar year to provide emergency shelter and direct services for victims of domestic violence and sexual assault.

Dallas Women’s Foundation is the largest regional women’s fund in the world, providing grants in the areas of Economic Security, Education and Leadership, and Health and Safety. Dallas Women’s Foundation granted over $4 million to non-profits aiding women and girls in the 2016 fiscal year alone.

DCFOF is the domestic violence and sexual assault agency that serves Denton County. Not only do they have an emergency shelter (that is at capacity 11 months out of the year), but they also provide adult and child counseling to traumatized victims, offer legal advocacy, and have a community education team focused on the prevention of these violent crimes. DCFOF also has a Sexual Assault Advocacy Team (SAAT), a Violence Intervention and Prevention Program (VIPP), a thrift store, a career resource center, a food pantry, and a 24 hr crisis line. All services provided to victims and survivors are free of charge.
