Verizon Foundation awards grant for Family Justice Center services

The Verizon Foundation has awarded $6,433 to the Family Justice Center Foundation Fund with the Greater Tacoma Community Foundation to fund mental health counseling and support groups for clients of the Crystal Judson Family Justice Center. The Verizon Foundation invests in organizations that provide education, prevention, care and empowerment resources for victims of domestic violence.

“We applaud the Verizon Foundation for their commitment to giving back to the community by supporting programs such as ours,” said Rick Talbert, a Pierce County Councilmember and chair of the Crystal Judson Family Justice Center’s Executive Board. “The benefit of the counseling and support groups to Center clients cannot be overstated. This program plays a vital role in helping clients move past the abuse to lives of safety and stability.”
