WAUSEON, OH (Toledo News Now) -
A push to provide
resources and aid to victims of domestic violence is underway, and the Wauseon
Police Department is getting help from a grant to do it.
Police Chief Keith Torbet
said it was more than 10 years ago when he noticed something was missing in
"We were having 90-95
domestic violences a year," Torbet said. "When I looked at the statistics, only
nine out of 90 went to see a victim advocate or got any counseling group."
So Torbet worked with the
chief at the time to apply for a grant, and he says they've done the same ever
The grant is for more than
$59,000 and it fully funds The Center for Child and Family Advocacy, a victim
advocacy group in Wauseon. Its purpose is to help domestic violence victims
connect with different resources they may need.
Heather Galbraith, a
victim advocate, says the center helps 500-600 victims per year.
"[That's 500-600 victims
per year] that would not have gotten this service," she said. "Who knows where
they would have ended up."
The program is free and
designed for anyone living in Fulton County.
