Grant Received to Protect Families from Domestic Violence

The state of Kansas recently received a grant from the U.S. Department of Justice’s Office on Domestic Violence.

According to reports, the state received a $400,000 grant that will benefit The Safe Havens: Supervised Visitation and Safe Exchange Grant Program.

Supervised Visitation and Safe Exchange Grant Program

The Safe Havens: Supervised Visitation and Safe Exchange Grant Program helps to create and enhance services that enable supervised visitation and the safe exchange of children who are involved in a domestic abuse case.

“Children are still vulnerable to family violence even after the separation from abusive situations. This grant funding will allow us to ensure the safety of children during parental visits by providing increased supervision,” explains Governor Kathleen Sebelius.

Supervised Visitation

Reports claim that when visitations are supervised, children don’t have the anxiety they have during normal parental visits.

The program also hopes to decrease the amount of physical abuse and abduction cases involving children.

Domestic Abuse

“Domestic violence is its own kind of child abuse. It destroys families, harms kids and damages our communities. This grant will help minimize the stress and enhance the safety of children confronted with domestic abuse,” says Kansas Attorney General, Paul Morrison.
