Time Out Shelter’s funds drop, but need rises

The only domestic violence shelter in Rim Country lost some $200,000 in state and federal support, just as the sickly economy has pushed domestic violence and the need for shelter to new highs. Time Out Shelter staff member Barbara Glinzak knows that such a trend can produce fatal results. Her own harrowing tale of abuse started when she was 8 and a friend of her father’s started to sexually molest her. After four years of terror and abuse, she fled her home at the age of 12. But she sought shelter with a boy six years older than she, who began to abuse her mentally and physically. She finally escaped that relationship with her current husband.
