Family Crisis Center, Inc. has been awarded a grant to provide crime victim assistance, Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt announced today.
The organization will receive $64,956 to provide advocacy and services for survivors of domestic and sexual violence and forensic interviews for abused children and additional services for non-offending family members.
“Providing these services to at-risk populations is important,” Schmidt said. “This grant will give a much needed voice to those who have suffered as a result of a crime.”
The grant is part of the Federal Edward J. Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant Program and was awarded by the Kansas Criminal Justice Coordinating Council. Schmidt serves as the chair of the council.
