WATERLOO (KWWL) -

Waypoint Services is expanding their domestic violence services program to Black Hawk County to transition from the services of Seeds of Hope, the company announced in a statement.

Waypoint Services, which has been providing victim services to Linn, Benton and Jones counties since 1974, was designated as the provider for Black Hawk County when the Crime Victim Assistance Division underwent restructuring during the last legislative session.

Seeds of Hope, which had been providing those services to residents in Black Hawk County, will work closely with Waypoint Services when the transition begins on July 1.

"In this transition Waypoint will focus on providing a full array of victim services that will be mobile and accessible for victims as well as allied service providers," Tara Beck, Waypoint Services Co-Director of Domestic Violence Victim Services said in a written statement.

"Seeds of Hope welcomes the transition to Waypoint Services supporting domestic violence victims/survivors in Black Hawk County. We are aware of the excellent services Waypoint has provided in Linn, Jones, and Benton counties and have collaborated with Waypoint in the past. Seeds of Hope will work very closely with Waypoint Services on this transition to ensure the continuity of care for victims/survivors is of the highest caliber," Terry Helinski, Executive Director at Seeds of Hope, said in a written statement.

If you are interested in volunteering with Waypoint Services, contact Tara Beck, Co-Director of Domestic Violence Victim Services, at 319-365-1458 ext. 6143 or tara@waypointservices.org or Jaye Kennedy, Chief Executive Officer at 319-365-1458 ext. 6130 or jkennedy@waypointservices.org.
