Letters needed for shelter grant


OTTUMWA — Dear Community Supporters,

I have to thank you for your strong support of the Crisis Center and Women’s Shelter. As a result of your strong commitment, we have retained Jefferson County as part of our service area.

Now I need strong letters of support from individuals, programs and other community agencies/groups to attach to our grant. An effective letter of support will describe the collaboration that you have had with our organization, the importance of domestic violence shelter and services in our region, the long standing relationships within our communities, ways that we can share resources and others you may think about. This is my first request but will not be my last, as we move forward in reorganization and prepare for the future of victim services in Iowa.

If you have specific questions, please email or call me. Thank you for your commitment to victims of domestic violence.

Cheryl Brown

Executive Director, Crisis Center

and Women’s Shelter
