DTE Energy Foundation Awards $10K To Women's Resource Center

By Beth Milligan | Oct. 11, 2018

The DTE Energy Foundation presented the Women’s Resource Center (WRC) with a $10,000 grant Wednesday to support victims of domestic violence.

The grant was presented at a ceremony at WRC's main office on Elmwood Avenue Wednesday morning. The funding will be used to support WRC’s emergency shelter program, which houses over 200 women and children every year.

“Domestic violence is one of the leading causes of homelessness for women and children. Our emergency shelter is a safe landing pad for women who are fleeing a violent home,” says Juliette Schultz, WRC Executive Director. “This generous gift from the DTE Energy Foundation is literally life-saving to some of the guests residing at the shelter.”

Lynette Dowler, president of the DTE Energy Foundation, said the group was "proud to present this outstanding organization with a grant that supports the much-needed emergency shelters offering refuge for women and children in the Grand Traverse region."
