AARC Receives Grant from Verizon Wireless

Posted: Updated:

Verizon Wireless is helping a Bismarck nonprofit provide shelter for victims of domestic violence. The company gave a $15,000 grant to the Abused Adult Resource Center to help house abuse victims from western North Dakota. The grant came from Verizon's HopeLine program, which funds organizations nationwide.

The amount of victims being sheltered rose 52 percent since 2008. The Abused Adult Resource Center says the increase is due, in part, to oil development in the western portion of the state.

The grant came from Verizon's HopeLine program, which funds organizations nationwide.
It's the largest single-year grant the AARC has received from the program.
