Gov. Kay Ivey this week awarded grants totaling $605,113 to help two non-profit organizations in Marshall County continue providing services to victims of child abuse and domestic violence.

The grants will fund a variety of services to assist victims in Marshall, DeKalb and Cherokee counties.

The agencies are Domestic Violence Crisis Services, which operates Kelley’s Rainbow, the domestic violence shelter in Marshall County named after a former Arab resident, and Child Advocacy Center of Marshall County.
