Earlier this week, we told you about Saving Grace being one of the “Best 100 Nonprofits to Work For in Oregon.” Looking deeper into Saving Grace's purpose, Executive Director Janet Huerta says it's a great honor, but at the same time, their dream is to go out of business. She says domestic violence statistics remain high and most victims never report the abuse. "We do know from other kind of large scale studied like all across Oregon, or whatever, that we're probably only seeing somewhere a third to a half of all the victims that are victimized every year. And we see an awful lot of people." Huerta says they do have some prevention programs in middle and high schools, but funding for them is sparse because showing prevention improvement stats is difficult to do. Huerta says one stat they are proud of is: if police intervene in a domestic violence case and those involved get help from a program like Saving Grace, there is a 60% reduction in re-assault.
