Hilltop Community Resources has received a $30,000 Daniels Fund grant to support its domestic violence programs. Hilltop operates two domestic violence programs — Latimer House and Tri-County Resources.
Both Latimer House and Tri-County Resources provide emergency shelter, individual and group counseling, advocacy, children's services and 24-hour crisis lines for those affected by domestic violence and sexual assault in Mesa, Delta, Montrose and Ouray counties. In 2012, Hilltop's domestic violence programs provided over 6,000 shelter nights to more than 400 women and children, responded to 2,500 calls to the 24-hour crisis lines, made over 100 community presentations on domestic violence and offered transitional housing services to 66 women and children escaping from domestic abuse.
Bill Daniels, a pioneer in cable television known for his kindness and generosity to those in need, established the Daniels Fund to provide grants and scholarships in Colorado, New Mexico, Utah and Wyoming. For more information on the Daniels Fund, visit www.danielsfund.org.
"We are very grateful to the Daniels Fund for supporting Latimer House," said program coordinator Karla Kitzman. "This funding furthers our mission of helping domestic violence and sexual assault victims move from crisis to confidence."
