COPE Domestic Violence Agency will soon be breaking ground for a new building which will house a thrift store and coffee shop. Cope Executive Director Judy Kile said they will be doing a capital campaign for construction costs….

The new building and the features within will allow COPE Domestic Violence Agency to be more stable financially. According to Kile, the additional funds will be especially important with the potential loss of federal funding. Kile said they could see a reduction of federal funding of as much as 40 percent.
