Nancy Grigsby Survivor Fund

The Board of Directors and staff of the Artemis Center for Alternatives to Domestic Violence have established the Nancy Grigsby Survivor Fund. The fund honors Nancy Grigsby, who left Artemis Center after 16 years of service. Grigsby is co-founder of Artemis Center, and served as co-director from 1985 to 1990 and Executive Director from 1990 to 2001. The fund honors Grigsby's dedication to the safety of domestic violence victims in this community.

The purpose of the fund is to enhance the safety of domestic violence victims and their children. The assistance provided will include food, shelter, and transportation, such as new locks or other home security needs, deposit or rent for shelter, assistance with utilities, or groceries - critical assistance for many domestic violence victims trying to leave an abusive situation with few resources. While Artemis Center receives program funding support from a number of government and private sources, few resources are available to assist with the basics of food, shelter, or transportation. Future plans for the fund include expanding the assistance to long-term needs such as education, home down payment, or emergency medical needs.
