Kentucky Together: Domestic Violence Shelters



When thinking of building thriving communities, the first thoughts are often to big budget items, like education, roads or public safety. But building thriving communities includes items in our state budget that may equal hundreds of millions, or maybe in the thousands. Currently, funding for domestic violence shelters and similar programs are a small portion of our General Fund expenses. But in order to have the communities we all want, we should close special interest loopholes and direct some of those funds into our domestic violence shelters, which are often underfunded and without enough space to meet demand. More investments would allow more places for people to feel safe and build better lives, like they do at Greenhouse 17 in Central Kentucky.
