Serenity Receives Funding for Public Education

With a grant from South Shore Foundation, Serenity, Inc. will produce its own educational programs about domestic violence prevention. Shown (from left) are Rachel Loggains, executive director of Serenity, Inc., with trustees of the South Shore Foundation Phyllis Speer and Jodie Elizabeth Jeffrey. Serenity received funding of $3,246 to purchase similar equipment.

Serenity, Inc., a shelter for victims of domestic violence and/or adult sexual assault, has received a grant from South Shore Foundation to assist the shelter with public education on the topics of rape and domestic violence prevention.

The grant of $3,246 from South Shore Foundation will help Serenity purchase a laptop computer and Power Point projector, plus software, to make presentations to the public, explaining its work and the issues it deals with. Several trustees of South Shore Foundation commented that they had found presentations made by Serenity to be educational and motivating.

According to Rachel Loggains, executive director, it is hoped that through Serenity’s community awareness training and education programs, "We can help decrease this cycle of violence that destroys families, lives, and all too often takes the lives of its victims."

Serenity serves residents of a four-county area including Baxter, Marion, Fulton, and Izard, or a population base of about 85,000. The director said most victims are low-income, rural women between ages 18 and 35, married, with children. To contact Serenity, call 870-424-7576.
