Big Bend Sentinel – Legal Aid receives domestic violence victims grant

Texas Rio Grande Legal Aid (TRLA) has received a $25,000 grant from the Carl B. & Florence E. King Foundation to support free legal services for victims of domestic violence in West Texas.

The grant will help fund TRLA’s efforts to provide legal protections to low-income victims of domestic violence in Brewster, Crockett, Jeff Davis, Kimble, Mason, Presidio, Reeves, Sutton, and Terrell counties. The grant will also support the continued legal alliance between TRLA and the Family Crisis Center of the Big Bend, a partnership that allows victims to receive free legal assistance from the moment they turn to a shelter for help.
