Family Crisis Center, Inc., of Great Bend, was awarded a grant to support its advocacy and services for survivors of domestic and sexual violence, Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt announced today.
The organization will receive $26,808 to support its programs, which include providing forensic interviews for abused children and services for non-offending caregivers of those children.
“Special skills are required to interview children who have been the victims of crime,” Schmidt said. “We are pleased to support Family Crisis Center in their efforts to provide these much-needed services.”
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.
