Sr. Betty Adams, Nuestra Casa/Our House, says Catholic Community Services operates three domestic violence shelters in Cochise and Santa Cruz Counties, including Nuestra Casa/Our House in Nogales. She says a bare bones staff operates the shelter, and funding cuts have eliminated follow-up services once a woman leaves the facility.  She says a $10,000 pending cut in State funds has been offset with local donations. Further cuts may not be adequately covered, she adds.
