Seminole Nation for domestic violence shelter

The Seminole Nation of Oklahoma will build its first domestic violence shelter.

The tribal council approved $250,000 towards the safe house. Additional funds will be raised for the $500,000 project.

The shelter will be open to tribal and non-tribal families. Currently, the tribe's domestic violence program must coordinate with other shelters in the state.
