For immediate release
Tri-County Crisis Center, Inc. is honored to announce that it has been awarded a Verizon Wireless Domestic Violence Entrepreneurship Grant. TCCC was recently founded in Beacon NY and will assist all victims of domestic violence; this generous grant will be used to help get the organization established.
"Victims that reach out for help need assistance and support in a timely manner. Tri-County Crisis Center, Inc. intends to make sure every victim receives services and will continue to do so with the support of generous donors like the Verizon Foundation and volunteers," said Executive Director Maria DiBari.
TCCC was recently founded in the wake of several domestic violence deaths in Dutchess County. "Given the recent tragedies, this grant is an important step toward getting TCCC up and running so that we can begin getting resources to domestic violence victims across Dutchess, Orange and Putnam Counties," said Administrative Director Alyssa Kogon.
TCCC is in need of donations and victim supplies such as pre-paid cell phones, laptops, fax machines, printers, postage, office supplies, and intends to create a “victims fund” for victims in need of emergency funds in the future.
