Cavalier, Pembina and Walsh county have come together to provide some extra funding for their local Domestic Violence and Abuse center.

Cavalier, Pembina and Walsh county have come together to provide some extra funding for their local Domestic Violence and Abuse center. The three counties are providing 24 thousand dollars to help the D-V-A-C.

That funding will not be enough to entirely save the group's shelter. Originally, the DVAC board was considering closing the shelter permanently, but with the new funding, the doors will close only from July first through September first.

"All that means is we going to have to house victims and their children in a safe alternative place." Says Jolene Halldorson the Executive Director of the DVIC.

The Domestic Violence and Abuse Center will continue to provide other services likes counseling and 24 hour emergency services.
