Please reinstate funding for Domestic Violence Programs

The mayor's cuts to domestic violence intervention services will hurt those most at risk: very low-income women and children. The DV intevention program at Wellspring Family Services, which will be directly affected by this cut, has been very succesful. In fact, 86% of men who particpated in our program have stopped all forms of emotiona land physical abuse. This type of treatment is extremely effective in stopping the cycle of domestic violence and vital to keeping women and children safe. Please support reinstatement of this vital funding
