Anti-violence coalition gets Regence grant
The Regence Foundation announced it has awarded a $20,000 grant to the Idaho Coalition Against Sexual and Domestic Violence to support a new program that will help Idaho health care providers screen for and respond to domestic and sexual violence, and adolescent dating abuse. The grant is part of Regence’s annual employee-nominated grant program.
“Every year we encourage Regence employees to nominate organizations that are doing transformative work in the health care field,” said Peggy Maguire, Regence Foundation board president. “We selected this employee-nominated organization specifically because it promotes and facilitates domestic violence and sexual abuse screening within the health care system.”
The coalition was nominated by Peter Kerrick, who works in pharmacy services in Regence’s Boise office.
The Idaho Coalition Against Sexual and Domestic Violence is a statewide nonprofit with more than 80 member programs and organizations dedicated to promoting healthy relationships and safe, thriving communities.
