Abriendo Puertas Receives $15,000 from The Fund for Women
A $15,000 grant was recently awarded to People’s Place by The Fund for Women of the Delaware Community Foundation. The generous grant will support its Abriendo Puertas (Opening Doors) domestic violence shelter program. The Abriendo Puertas Program is the only statewide bicultural and bilingual domestic violence shelter program serving Latina women and children who are escaping, experiencing or have been affected by domestic violence. The funding will be used to purchase food for shelter residents and groceries for women who have left shelter or chosen not to enter shelter. For the past two decades, The Fund for Women has made a significant impact on the lives of women and girls in Delaware.
