A $10,000 donation from Point Breeze Credit Union will be used by SARC to provide needed services to victims and survivors of domestic violence, sexual violence, child abuse and stalking throughout Harford County.

“Because we rely completely on community support to offer a wide range of services to those fleeing abuse in their lives, it is a tremendous boost to receive a gift like that provided by Point Breeze,” said Neala Lancellotti, the development director for the Sexual Assault/Spouse Abuse Resource Center.

According to Lancellotti, SARC’s services — all of which are confidential and offered free of charge — include a 24-hour helpline, abuser and crisis intervention, counseling services, legal representation and advocacy, and a 20-bed shelter for victims.

“Being a good neighbor and an involved member of our community is an essential part of Point Breeze Credit Union’s mission,” says Point Breeze President and CEO Bernard McLaughlin. “We take that commitment to community very seriously, and so we are proud to support SARC’s ongoing mission to be Harford County’s lifeline to victims of violence.”
