Avigilon, Vancouver, British Columbia, announced its donation of a full high-definition (HD) surveillance system to Harbor House of Central Florida, an emergency shelter and community organization for women, men, children and pets who are victims of domestic abuse.
Harbor House seeks to eliminate domestic violence by providing safety, shelter, counseling, education, advocacy and justice. The Avigilon installation will take place in October coinciding with Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
Due to the nature of its programs and the survivors’ need for protection, Harbor House has made security a priority and will benefit from the safety improvement that the installation will ensure. Commercial Systems Group (CSG), a systems contractor offering design, installation and service for all commercial systems, provided further support for the donation with additional products and installation services.
“Given that many of our residents are escaping dangerous situations, we are very grateful to receive this donation from Avigilon,” said Carol Wick, chief executive officer (CEO) at Harbor House. “The HD surveillance system will vastly improve our security capabilities and increase the feelings of safety and sanctuary at Harbor House. Avigilon’s program is truly making an impact on neighborhoods and organizations in need.”
The Harbor House donation was made through Give Back, Avigilon’s new corporate social responsibility program. As part of this initiative, Avigilon will continue to provide surveillance systems to charitable organizations that demonstrate financial need and offer protection. Donations through the Give Back program are tailored to the specific needs of the organization and the program is available in any country in which Avigilon has an office.
