Shaheen Kicks Off 'Invest in NH' Tour Highlighting Federal Dollars Coming to NH through New Government Funding Law
Press Release from Senator Jeanne Shaheen
January 10, 2023
Shaheen visited Turning Points Network in Claremont, one of New Hampshire Coalition Against Domestic and Sexual Violence’s (NHCADSV) 12 domestic and sexual violence crisis centers. Turning Points Network will receive a CDS award of $162,000, which will be used for critical office updates, such as the installation of a security system, a phone system that includes the 24-hour crisis line and updated office equipment and furnishings.
“We remain grateful to Senator Shaheen for ensuring that advocates have the tools and resources they need to respond to domestic and sexual violence in their communities. The Senator continues to be a leading advocate for the critical work of New Hampshire’s 12 crisis centers and understands how important securing federal funding is so they can carry out their mission and provide live-saving services to those fleeing abuse,” said Amanda Grady Sexton, Director of Public Affairs, NH Coalition Against Domestic and Sexual Violence.
“Over the last three years, crisis center advocates have seen a heightened demand for services and complex cases that require more intensive and long-term support. These services are essential to help survivors and their families heal from their trauma and to effectively educate communities on how to prevent domestic and sexual violence. We are excited to see the impact that the Congressionally Directed Spending will have for the crisis centers receiving funding for these important projects. This type of flexible funding is crucial to allowing crisis centers to address the unique needs in their communities and make a real difference in the lives of survivors.”
