The premiere public broadcast of the highly anticipated documentary film, “A Living Monument-West Virginia’s Courthouses”, will occur on Wednesday, June 8, 2011, at 8:00 PM on the WV Public Broadcasting System television stations in the state. This excellent film depicts the history and the important impact that our county courthouses have had on the lives of our citizens, our 55 counties and our justice system. The WV Association of Counties spearheaded this project in collaboration with the WV Courthouse Facilities Improvement Authority, WV Public Broadcasting and the Walkabout Company. The Bar Foundation was pleased to provide
grants for the production and the distribution of this important documentary.



Recently, the Bar Foundation’s Grants Committee and Board of Directors approved a grant to the Monongalia County Child Advocacy Center in Morgantown. In a letter from the agency’s Executive Director, Laura Capage, Ph.D., she stated that–“this grant will enable us to offer free behavioral therapy sessions to young victims of child abuse and neglect in Monongalia County. These services are essential in helping victims become children again.” In 2010, the agency served over 400 clients and anticipates serving more in 2011.


The Just for Kids organization in Beckley received a grant from the Bar Foundation recently. Scott Miller, the Executive Director, sent a personal note which said–“This grant will allow us to provide Stewards of Children training to a wider audience in the three counties that we serve. Your support will help us in our effort to significantly reduce the incidence of child sexual abuse in Southern West Virginia.” The Grants Committee and Board of Directors approved this “generous grant”, as Executive Director Miller characterized it in his note.
