Provided by Women's Protective Services

WPS is excited to announce that it has received a grant award in the amount of $5,000 from the Texas Bar Foundation.

The award will be used to support our Regional Outreach/Community Education program in purchasing additional outreach materials such as brochures and other resources to educate the community about domestic violence and the criminal justice system.

Since its inception in 1965, the Texas Bar Foundation has awarded more than $15 million in grants to law-related programs. Supported by members of the State Bar of Texas, the Texas Bar Foundation is the nation's largest charitably-funded bar foundation. Women's Protective Services commends the Texas Bar Foundation for their continued support of WPS and the women, children, and men that we serve.
