VANCOUVER, Canada — Avigilon has donated a high definition (HD) surveillance system to Harbor House of Central Florida, an emergency shelter and community organization for victims of domestic abuse.
Since the 1970s, Harbor House has been highly regarded as one of the most comprehensive domestic abuse programs in the state of Florida. The organization has five main programs to support its mission including an emergency shelter, children’s services, community outreach, legal advocacy services, and community and professional education. Because of the survivors’ need for protection, the organization made upgrading security and safety a top priority, says Harbor House CEO Carol Wick.
“Given that many of our residents are escaping dangerous situations, we are very grateful to receive this donation from Avigilon,” she says. “The HD surveillance system will vastly improve our security capabilities and increase the feelings of safety and sanctuary at Harbor House.”
Avigilon donated the surveillance system through its new corporate social responsibility program titled “Give Back.” The program is dedicated to assisting charities safeguard people, property or the environment. As part of this initiative, Avigilon will continue to provide surveillance systems to charitable organizations that demonstrate financial need and offer protection.
The manufacturer contacted Apopka, Fla.-based systems integrator Commercial Systems Group (CSG) to install the solution, as well as additional products.
