Mason County Has its First Domestic Violence ShelterNovember 25th, 2008 by josh farley
A domestic violence shelter is coming to Mason County for the first time, according to the Mason County Sheriff’s Office.
The center, opening in an undisclosed location to protect the victims, will house adults, children and small pets. It can take up to 60 people at any given time.
The center will be run by the organization “Turning Pointe Domestic Violence Services,” and they’ll hold a grand opening at 3 p.m. Dec. 5 at the Choice High School Auditorium, at 807 W. Pine Street, Shelton.
Here in Kitsap, we have the YWCA‘s shelters in Bremerton and on Bainbridge. Also on the domestic violence front, the prosecutor’s office recently reorganized an office that provides a one-stop location for domestic violence victims of all kinds.
