Cassidy Secures Nearly $500,000 Grant for Wellspring Alliance for Families to Prevent Domestic Violence in Northeast Louisiana

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Bill Cassidy, M.D. (R-LA) today announced a $442,308 grant for the Wellspring Alliance for Families, Inc. of Monroe, Louisiana to support their domestic violence protection program from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).

“The Wellness Alliance for Families is doing great work serving those in Northeast Louisiana. This grant supports their efforts to prevent domestic violence and build a brighter future for our children,” said Dr. Cassidy.

These funds will be used for their domestic violence prevention program to break the intergenerational cycle of violence through intervention. They plan to partner with the Louisiana Department of Children and Family Services, Child Protective Services, Louisiana State University Health Science Center’s Family Medicine Residency Program in Monroe, SAFE Task Force of Ouachita Parish, and SAFER Task Forces of Morehouse and Franklin Parishes.

Last May, Cassidy sent a letter of support for their application for funding from HHS’ Administration for Children and Families.
