The DOJ is allocating money for transitional housing. by Julia Gray

According to the Department of Justice, Native American women are 2.5 times more likely to be victims of domestic violence than any other group. They have a program that allocates funds to help those victims. Oregon Senators Ron Wyden and Jeff Merkley announced Tuesday they have secured about a quarter million dollars to fund transitional housing and other services for victims of domestic abuse, dating violence, sexual assault and stalking who are homeless or in need of transitional housing. In a written statement, Wyden says too many women remain trapped in abusive relationships because they have nowhere to go for protection and help. And these funds mean Warm Springs victims will never have to choose between remaining in an abusive relationship or living on the street.
