DVCC Flood Recovery Continues

Posted: Updated:

After the flood of 2011, the Domestic Violence Crisis Center of Minot lost their shelters and offices.

This forced them to discontinue the transitional living program, which offers homes to victims of domestic violence.

And finally, this year, they are getting it up and running again.

Construction on the "New Beginnings Campus" is still going on at their new location next to Jefferson Elementary School, and is expected to be complete by next year.

With a lack of space right now, however, food and clothing are being held in Tupperware containers outside, and lining the halls.

The executive director says that even though it won't be complete for some time, she's glad to be able to finally help these families again.

(Dena Filler, Executive Director, DVCC) "It's really great because we know housing is really hard for low income people in the city of Minot right now, and we know that's a reason why victims don't leave, or they return back to that abusive relationship."

To donate money to help the DVCC with their new shelter, contact their office at 852-2258.
