The Sparrow’s House of Yadkin in Yadkin County, North Carolina, a local emergency domestic violence shelter for women and children, has received a $40,000 grant from The Z. Smith Reynolds Foundation, TWC News reported on February 15.
The Sparrow’s House opened November 2014 and currently receives no state or federal funding due to its recent establishment. Sparrow’s House executive director Jennifer Bowman explained that the shelter is not yet eligible for government funding; it must have been open for a year and provided crisis hotline services during that time.
Z. Smith Reynolds program operator James Gore, for his part, said the foundation caters to providing monetary support to shelters of domestic violence in North Carolina, and the shelter is needed in that area of the state.
The shelter spends around $13,000 each month for its operation expenses, and grants like this keep it functioning.
