Email News Alerts

Hubbard County will lose a child abuse advocate unless significant funds are raised by Oct. 1.

Headwaters Intervention Center received a letter in July from the Office of Justice Programs through the state saying funding would be reduced by $20,000. Many other programs throughout the state received similar letters.


Nicole Opsal, Child Abuse Advocate for Headwaters Intervention Center, said kids will be negatively affected without the programs offered through her office.
