Grant supports domestic violence and senior care programs

Hilltop Community Resources based in Grand Junction has received a $60,000 grant from the Daniels Fund to help operate domestic violence shelters in Mesa County as well as Delta, Montrose and Ouray counties. The grant also will support the Senior Daybreak program in Grand Junction.

“We are grateful to the Daniels Fund for supporting these programs. This funding will help ensure Hilltop’s ability to provide these vital services to the community,” said Mike Stahl, chief executive officer of Hilltop.

Domestic violence programs have provided emergency shelter to about 450 women and children, responded to more than 8,300 calls placed to a crisis line and offered other community services so far in 2015.

The Senior Daybreak program offers adult day care services and has assisted 86 families over the past year.
