Domestic Violence Shelter Dealing With Overcrowding

(Bonne Terre) The Southeast Missouri Family Violence Council is dealing with a serious overcrowding problem at it’s shelter in Bonne Terre. Tracy Carroll is the assistant director at the shelter. She says they are busting at the seams.

Carroll says a big key to cutting down on domestic violence is to get into the schools to educate children.

The violence council helps women and children in abusive situations in a five county area. They serve Iron, Madison, St. Francois, Ste. Genevieve and Washington Counties.
