Carbondale Women's Center expands to 2nd location | News
CARBONDALE, IL (KFVS)- In a way to keep up with the growing number of abuse cases in Illinois, The Women's Center in Carbondale has expanded to two locations.
The Eurma Hayes center will act as second place for abuse victims to find help.
With the same services and programs available, volunteers hope that in turn, even more victims will come forward and seek assistance.
"We see an increase in need for services everyday and no community is immune from gender violence, we are just trying to be accessible and available to people who need our services," said Megan Jones-Williams with the center.
To get the word out-earlier Friday, volunteers put on a block party with food and activities for kids and to celebrate the new outreach building.
