Empowerhouse Seeking to Expand Services to Community
Free Lance-Star's Adele Uphaus-Conner reports about breaking the cycle of domestic abuse, its stigma, as well as its affects on children's development. Of note: Spotsylvania County contributed the past three years to Empowerhouse in the following amounts: FY17 $69,808, FY18 $69,808, FY19 $55,448. All three years the allocated amounts matched the requested contribution. There may be some that question public money to non-profits, but if the program has community support and is showing results, it is likely going to be much more cost effective than having local government take the lead.
