PENDLETON — The Guardian Care Center in Pendleton is one of 24 child advocacy centers in Oregon to receive around $131,000 through a grant from Senate Bill 1579 B, which Gov.Tina Kotek signed into law at the end of March.

According to a press release, the bill, known as the Children’s Health and Safety Equity Act, begins the work of funding and expanding access to underserved, historically marginalized, low-income areas of the state while offering needed services, via child advocacy centers, to children who have been abused.
