Blue Shield of California Foundation announced a grant Wednesday of $15,000 to the Domestic Violence Center of Santa Clarita Valley to strengthen their capacity to provide critical services and shelter for survivors of domestic violence in Santa Clarita Valley.
These core operating funds offer the flexibility to respond to changes and challenges as they arise, so that vital community organizations like the DVC can continue to reach many of the most vulnerable Californians.
“It is a privilege to partner with and support California’s network of domestic violence service providers, including the DVC,” said Peter Long, Ph.D., president and CEO of Blue Shield of California Foundation. “Their role in the community is absolutely essential, and we are committed to ensuring they have the resources they need to continue serving domestic violence survivors and their families.”
The Foundation understands the importance of unrestricted core operating funds, which can help domestic violence agencies cover important organizational costs during a time when public resources remain scarce.
“Blue Shield of California Foundation is an amazing partner supporting our mission to create healthy relationships through intervention, prevention, and education to end the cycle of violence. Blue Shield of California Foundation has made a huge difference in California effecting positive change in the lives of women, children and men who have experienced intimate partner violence,” said Linda Davies, executive director of the Domestic Violence Center in the Santa Clarita Valley.
This funding is part of a group of grants designed to empower California’s domestic service providers and help them continue to make a difference in the lives of thousands of women, children, and families across the state.
