NORCROSS — Verizon Wireless awarded a $12,000 grant Friday to the Norcross-based Women Are Dreamers, Too program.

The non-profit organization provides counseling and business training for survivors of domestic abuse and assists them in becoming small-business owners. The money will be used to fund counseling programs for victims of domestic violence and for the organizations’s Micro-Enterprise Training Center program.

“We applaud Verizon Wireless’ commitment to programs like ours that specifically address the needs of domestic violence survivors and help them become economically self-sufficient,” said program founder Cindy Williams.
Verizon Wireless, the nation’s largest wireless service provider, donated more than $3.7 million last year to domestic violence shelters and prevention programs across the country.
