Del Rio Leaders Secure Funds for Domestic Violence Shelter

"A new shelter to aid victims of domestic violence is one step closer to reality. Monday, Val Verde County Judge Laura Allen and the Commissioners Court granted a one-year funding contract for $128,846 to Quad Counties Council on Alcohol and Drug Abuse (QCCADA) to help begin the process of opening and operating a shelter."

Said Simon Sotelo, Director of QCCADA: "We thank the community and the commissioners' court for voting and demonstrating confidence in us. We thank the community for their trust and we thank the churches, the mayor's office, the Border Organization and all the people and organizations that believe in us."
