"GFS continues to be honored as a recipient of the grant funds from the Caesars Foundation," she continued. "With the recent cuts in the state budget and the loss of city funding, Caesars Foundation has come through once again to help us continue to provide services to victims of domestic violence and their children by providing a safe haven when they flee violent homes."
According to Gower, Guardian Family Services has been a steadfast advocate of families in crisis in the region since its inception in 2000. Since that time, victims of domestic violence have been given the opportunity to regain their dignity and self worth in order to facilitate a better future for themselves and their families. These funds will assist in the staggering financial needs of providing daily essentials, such as housing, food, diapers, paper goods, cleaning supplies, personal care items and clothes.
