Methodist Justice Ministry (MJM), located in Fort Worth, has announced that Texas Women’s Foundation has awarded a grant to MJM to provide counseling services to women and their children who have been impacted by family violence and abuse.
Rev. Brooks Harrington, Legal Director at MJM, stated “The heart of MJM is the counseling services that we provide our clients to help them break the generational cycle of abuse and go on to live a life of independence and stability for themselves and their children. The Mrs. H.L. (Ruth Ray) Hunt Memorial Fund at Texas Women’s Foundation grant will allow us to offer more counseling sessions and enhance our services beyond legal representation of our clients. We are truly grateful for their support.”
Texas Women’s Foundation, formerly Dallas Women’s Foundation, is investing to Transform Texas for women and girls, empowering them to build stronger, more equitable communities throughout Texas. One of the world’s largest women’s funds in the region, the Foundation raises funding from a broad base of donors, including individuals, foundations and corporations. These resources support more than $6.3 million in investments that advance economic security and leadership for Texas women and girls through groundbreaking research, advocacy, grants and programs. The Foundation’s statewide research on issues affecting women and girls provides decision-makers and lawmakers with critical data to inform policies, practices and programs in the state.
MJM is a law firm that focuses on a specific need – women and children who are victims of domestic violence, neglect, and abuse. MJM’s support, however, does not end when a judgment or injunction is issued. Instead, the staff at MJM continue to support its clients as they learn to live a life free of violence and fear and reconstruct their network and independence.
