Hyde County Hotline receives $20,000 Mary Kay Foundation grant

Hyde County Hotline recently received a $20,000 unrestricted grant to support local survivors of domestic violence in Hyde County. The award was part of the Mary Kay Foundation’s $3 million in grants to 150 domestic violence shelters across the country.

“The need for shelter services in Hyde County is tremendous,” explained Alisa Greer, Hyde Hotline’s client services advocate. “Between January 1 and November 30, 2018 Hyde County Hotline served 126 victims of domestic violence in person and received 584 domestic violence related crisis calls. We also served 84 victims of sexual assault in person and received 601 sexual assault related crisis calls.”

Kathryn Ballance, executive director of Hyde County Hotline, said”Hyde County Hotline is very blessed to have received this generous grant of $20,000 from the Mary Kay Foundation, and we are very grateful. Our agency continues to provide compassionate services to all victims of domestic violence and sexual assault in Hyde County. The challenges we face are unique to the geographical isolation and distressed economy of our area, and grants such as the one we have received from the Mary Kay Foundation are critically important to our ability to assist victims.”
