GARNETT — A victim-services agency that provides services to Anderson County residents may have to cut. Hope Unlimited, Iola, offers a child visitation center, child advocacy services, an emergency shelter, and helps victims of domestic violence and sexual assault in Anderson, Allen, Neosho and Woodson counties. However, the state is cutting its funding for agencies such as Hope Unlimited, said executive director Dorothy Sparks. Because her agency has a small budget, Sparks said she may have to cut one person. Cuts come at a time when there is greater demand for Hope Unlimited’s services because of the economy, she said. The agency will look for other sources of money and will conduct more fundraisers, she said.
