HAWC awarded $100K Cummings grant

SALEM — A North Shore domestic violence agency will receive a $100,000 Cummings Foundation grant after being nominated by a Swampscott resident for the award.

Ernie Agresti, a Cummings employee, nominated HAWC (Healing Abuse, Working for Change) for a grant through his employer this spring.

Agresti had no connection to HAWC other than that he knew of the good work the agency does on the North Shore, said Paula Gomez Stordy, HAWC’s director of community relations.

The agency will use the $100,000 to support all of its services, Stordy said. The funds will be distributed over four years.

HAWC serves 23 communities on the North Shore and offers a shelter, 24-hour hotline, advocacy, support groups and other programs to prevent domestic abuse and help its victims. Headquartered in Salem, the nonprofit also has offices in Lynn and Gloucester.

The Woburn-based Cummings Foundation is a private charitable fund created by Joyce and Bill Cummings of Winchester, who own the Cummings Center office park in Beverly.
