YAKIMA, WA. -- A Yakima organization donated a large local grant this week to help prevent domestic abuse.

The Yakima Valley Community Fund is giving $11,000 dollars to the YWCA to build greater awareness about family violence and homelessness in the Valley. The YWCA says this grant is particularly special because the money comes directly from another local group.

"They're a wonderful partner and they've supported our projects for the last several years," YWCA Grant Director Donna Hatten said. "And we're so appreciative of all of their supports because it takes the entire community to make a difference."

The YWCA treated 4,000 victims of violence and homelessness last year and will put this grant money toward helping families in the Yakima Valley.
