TOWSON, MD (April 23, 2012) – YWCA Annapolis and Anne Arundel County is the recipient of the Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services’ inaugural Excellence in Victim Outreach award. During National Crime Victims’ Rights Week, three people or organizations across the state were chosen for the honor; one from each of DPSCS’ organizational regions.

Kristina Donnelly, Executive Assistant at Patuxent Institution, nominated YWCA for the South region. “It is through their caring approach that victims of domestic violence can find the courage to leave their abusers and break the cycle of violence,” she wrote in the nomination form.

The DPSCS Excellence in Victim Outreach Award was created to honor a DPSCS employee, volunteer or partner agency who has made notable contributions in proving effective services to victims of crime, or who has gone above and beyond his or her duties to improve the life of a crime victim.

Congratulations to YWCA Annapolis and Anne Arundel County, and thank you for all that you do.
