Tri-County Resources is now operating under a new name -- Hilltop Domestic Violence Services. Hilltop's Domestic Violence Services will continue to provide services for those affected by domestic violence and sexual assault in Montrose, Delta and Ouray counties. Services include the safe house in Delta, support groups, case management, education and awareness programs, intervention assistance, advocacy, and a new 24-hour crisis line number: 1-844-990-5500 in all three counties.
Kaye Hotsenpiller, senior director of regonal services, said, "It was time for Tri-County Resources to adopt a new name. We did not believe our name explained what our program offers. We are excited that our new name could help us reach more individuals affected by domestic violence and sexual assault."
A collaborative effort between the Delta County Sheriff's Office and municipal law enforcement agencies throughout Delta County has resulted in a proposal for a 1 percent sales tax increase to fund public safety. A PowerPoint presentation titled "Back the Badge" is starting to make the rounds at city/town council meetings, service club luncheons and other events.
