Funds held in Chillicothe’s account will transfer to the Livingston County Educational and Housing Council, a 501c3 nonprofit organization, effective July 1st. This action was necessary, according to Cox, since Green Hills Women’s Shelter organization had given indications it was planning to close the Chillicothe facility.

Chillicothe board members Steve Cox, Margaret Mata, Martha Berry and Trent Gann were concerned that closing the shelter would limit and reduce access to resources for domestic violence victims. They felt that a return to local control was necessary to insure community needs would be met in the future. According to Margaret Matt, the group plans to involve many individuals and organizations to develop and deliver programs to help protect victims of domestic violence.

The preliminary plan for the transition includes a name change from the Chillicothe Women’s Shelter to the “SAFE HAVEN CENTER”. Pam Hull, a full time advocate, at the shelter has agreed to continue after July 1st with the Safe Haven Center.

Organizers point out community support is vital to the future success of the Womens’ safe haven center. Monetary donations can be sent to: Safe Haven Center, P. O. Box 346, at Chillicothe.
