Strong Partners Support Home Buyers on the Resources for Violence Within Homes
Local Real Estate Agency, Laflin & Wolfington, donates $15,000 to Family Violence Project in an ongoing partnership to support victims and survivors of domestic abuse.
Augusta, Maine April 1, 2021 – Family Violence Project received a large donation as part of an ongoing partnership between a domestic violence resource center and a real estate agency. Laflin & Wolfington Realty of Farmingdale has taken on the challenge of ending domestic abuse within its community by raising more than $65,000 for the cause. They have built a system in which a donation is made each time a home is purchased or sold through their agency. The staff has donated items for holidays, back-to-school programs, and more. “The agency has been one of our strongest community partners to date,” said Nathan MacDonald, Development and Community Engagement Director for Family Violence Project. “Not only has Laflin & Wolfington Realty contributed significant funds to the agency, but they have also gone out of their way to educate home buyers and sellers on domestic abuse in their presentations, newsletters, and promotional material.”
In 2019, a domestic assault was reported in Maine every 2 hours and 22 minutes, according to the State of Maine Department of Public Safety’s ‘Crime in Maine’ document. This ever-present challenge makes community partnerships even more important in supporting survivors. “Laflin and Wolfington Realty’s commitment to supporting victims/survivors of domestic violence is evident through their ongoing partnership with Family Violence Project. They are community leaders by speaking out for this cause, as well as securing regular donations that help the people we serve” stated Pamela Morin, Executive Director for Family Violence Project. “With each donation we receive, we become all that much closer to our shared goal to end domestic violence. I want to express a special thank you to them for consistently making a difference through their awareness, generosity, and dedication!” Laflin & Wolfington Realty is located at 704 Maine Avenue, Farmingdale ME 04344 and can be contacted by phone at 207-629-9211 or by email at [email protected]
