BRIGHAM CITY, Utah (AP) -- A domestic violence center in Brigham City is serving more women and children this year.
From July to September, the Your Community in Unity center saw 65 women and 103 children. Last year it served 20 women and 23 children.
Center Director Annette MacFarlane says people are becoming more aware that the center exists. She also says population growth and violence in society mean more people are seeking help.
Ogden's Your Community Connection center hasn't seen an unexpected increase in the number of clients. But the center's assistant director, Raquel Lee, says people are staying longer at the shelter to get more counseling.
