The Dove Center is asking leaders in Washington City for more funding to help survivors of abuse.

The nonprofit has asked city council members for an additional 75-thousand dollars to renovate a transitional housing center known as Erin's Home.

The money would come from a federal grant program issued by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.

The Dove Center says their emergency shelter helped 150 families last year, with a typical stay ranging from 30 to 90 days.
