The McLeod County Board took under advisement two requests for funding from nonprofit agencies at its Tuesday, July 19, meeting.
Jen Johnson, executive director for Save Avenues, asked the County Board to allocate $2,200 in 2017. The county provided $2,100 in 2016.
Johnson said Safe Avenues is an 18-county agency which advocates for victims of sexual abuse.
In 2014, the agency established an office in Hutchinson, and works closely with the McLeod Alliance for Victims of Domestic Violence, (MAVDV) which has an office just down the hall.
