On Wednesday, Legislator Francis Corcoran announced an agreement among the towns of Bedford, Lewisboro, North Salem, Pound Ridge and Somers to create a dedicated domestic violence advocate and centralized facility in northern Westchester and to provide additional training for police to assess domestic violence cases. The project will largely be funded through a $200,000 grant from the New York State Risk Reduction Enhanced Response program which was obtained through The Westchester County Office for Women.
The idea for the municipal agreement began at a meeting of The Northeast Westchester Domestic Abuse Alliance (NEW-DAA), a consortium comprised of Northeast Westchester-based Domestic Violence service providers, Law Enforcement, clergy and faith leaders and survivors dedicated to creating an integrated response to domestic violence by providing support to victims/survivor.
Other organizations participating in the outreach program are Hope’s Door, the Pace Women’s Law Center and the Westchester County District Attorney’s office.
Any victim of domestic violence can access these services by calling their local police department or the Hope’s Door 24 hour hotline at 888-438-8700.
