By From page A3 | November 18, 2012

FAIRFIELD — A $300,000 federal grant will help provide services for African-American women who are pregnant or mothers of newborns and who have been victims of sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence or stalking.

LIFT3 Support Group was one of 21 agencies out of 170 applicants to get the grant. The nonprofit group will work with the county Office of Family Violence Prevention and Black Infant Health to reach this untapped population of African-American women, a LIFT3 press release said.

“This program creates a unique opportunity for targeted community-based organizations to address the critical needs of sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence and stalking victims in a manner that affirms a victim’s culture and effectively addresses language and communication barriers,” the press release said.
