Recession forces northern Colorado nonprofit to close its doors

The only domestic violence agency in Weld County, A Woman’s Place, is being forced to close its doors because of declining revenues associated with the recession, according to a recent Greeley Tribune article. The Greeley nonprofit was forced to cut its staff in half this year because of declining revenues, at the same time that the client load has exponentially increased. In the last year, the average client stay at its emergency has gone from six to eight days to 30.

Despite closing its doors, A Woman’s Place plans to keep providing its services as it searches for another location.
