County commission provides grant to alliance
The Alliance Against Family Violence received a boost Thursday from the Leavenworth County Commission that will help ease a financial crisis caused by the loss of a $250,000 federal grant.
County commissioners voted 3-0 to give the alliance a one-time, $25,000 grant. The money will come out of the county's 2006 general fund and will be paid in a lump sum.
"Thank you very much. I'm going to have a good night's sleep tonight," Kay Andersen, the alliance's executive director told commissioners after the vote.
