Second Chance Receives Additional Funding


Calhoun County’s Second Chance is one of seventeen domestic violence agencies across Alabama that will begin receiving additional funds to provide services for victims. The Domestic Violence Trust Fund, which went into effect in January, will supply supplemental revenue for the agencies to provide shelter for victims and conduct educational and prevention programs. The law, enacted by the Legislature and signed in June 2015 by Governor Robert Bentley, sets the marriage license fee at $60 which is distributed to help domestic violence programs in the state. Agencies receiving the funds are all members of the Alabama Coalition Against Domestic Violence.
