A $100,000 grant is awarded to the Committee Against Domestic Abuse from the Otto Bremer Trust.

The award includes a 25 percent matching component, where Otto Bremer Trust will match up to $25,000 worth of community donations to support CADA's mission.

CADA says the funds will help with daily operations and gives them the ability to help more people in the communities across the 8 county region in southern Minnesota.

In 2018, CADA's emergency shelter served 125 women and 101 child victims of domestic and sexual violence.

The organization also assisted more than 2000 victims, a 47 percent increase compared to two years ago.
