LIADV gets grant from United Way

L.I. Against Domestic Violence announced on Wednesday that it received a $9,000 Community Partner Grant from United Way of Long Island.

The grant will help support LIADV’s education and prevention programs for at-risk youth and community members in Suffolk County, as well as provide health resources for those in need.

“LIADV is very grateful to be a community partner with United Way and to benefit from the generosity of donors,” said Colleen Merlo, executive director of LIADV. “This funding allows us to reach youth, giving them tools to make healthy relationship choices.”

The Community Partner Grant is part of United Way’s Long Island Impact Fund, which works with more than 100 nonprofit partners to benefit Long Islanders in need.
