State Gets DC Cash For Domestic Abuse

The state is getting more than  one-million-dollars in federal grants to strengthen support for victims  of domestic violence.  

Specifically targeted are two populations at high  risk, individuals who are deaf and hard of hearing and families  involved with child welfare who have experienced domestic violence.   

According to the National Centers for Disease Control, nearly one in  three women and one in five men in Massachusetts have experienced  physical violence by an intimate partner in their lifetime.
