Ms. Finn's article on domestic violence in the 11/29 Independent was very, very good. One mistake — the organization was founded before 1997. I left in 1997 and the organization was celebrating ten years of being in service and the founder is a very good friend of mine, Sherry Wolfe. Please check your facts. Planning for it started in 1983. The hotline started in 1986 and the shelter opened in 1990. Please check facts!
