Shelter receives grant for kitchen renovation

The Beloit Domestic Violence Survivor Center
The Beloit Domestic Violence Survivor Center received a grant in the amount of $990 from the
Stateline Community Foundation which made a kitchen renovation possible. The funds were
used to purchase a new countertop for the shelter facility. The donation of the cabinets from
the Ironworks Hotel, formerly the Beloit Inn, was coordinated by a group of women enrolled in
the Leadership Development Academy (Linda Ross, Katrina Bell, Tracy Bliss, Shannon Dunphy-
Alexander and Brittany Strickert), who have focused on the shelter for their class project. The
building serves as a temporary home for families who have experienced violence in their lives.

shelter and letting us help!
It was an honor.
