Harbor House to break ground today on new domestic violence shelter
After struggling for years with an overcrowded, deteriorating domestic-violence shelter, Harbor House of Central Florida will break ground today on a $7.4 million facility for adult survivors and their children.
The 27,500-square-foot building is considered state of the art, leaders say — with natural light for every bedroom, a serene and “homey” environment, a separate area for nursing moms and two bulletproof safe rooms should an intruder make it past other security measures on the property.
Sanford firefighter’s daughter receives $1000 award from ESA of Florida
Sanford, FL– Ms. Skylar Bauman will begin her studies at the University of Florida this fall with a $1000 gift from the members of the Electronic Security Association of Florida. Ms. Bauman is a high-achieving honor roll student, dedicated community volunteer, and daughter of Lt. Matt Hall who is with the Sanford Fire Department. ESA of Florida Board Director and President of Commercial Systems Group Dino DeRose presented the scholarship gift on May 28th at the Sanford Fire Department.
“Through every late night call to put out unreasonably ignited dumpsters to birthing babies, he has invested in me,” Ms. Bauman wrote in her application. It is clear that Ms. Bauman was raised with the values of a first responder; her contributions to society are numerous and benefit many areas of the community. In addition to school-based clubs such as National Honor Society, Drama Club, Yearbook Copy Editor and Girls State Senate, Skylar has offered her time and her knowledge to American Cancer Society, Special Olympics, various senior centers and faith-based groups.
In her search for scholarship opportunities, ESA of Florida’s Youth Scholarship Program was one of only three organizations Ms. Bauman found that was dedicated to children of public safety professionals.
“Having a parent working to secure the community… means I have not just one but an entire shift and clan of role models who are looking out for my, the community’s, and the future’s best interests,” Ms. Bauman wrote.
“Our company motto is ‘Protecting People and Facilities.’ Being at the firehouse to deliver the award, I realized how close our company mission is to that of a first responder,” said Mr. DeRose. “We’re proud to help young people like Ms. Bauman and we’re proud of our Youth Scholarship Program.”
Collective Education Center of Orlando
CECO now has an amazing new facility. The new and larger center was built out with a $750,000 budget.

CSG is honored to be amongst the group of supporting contractors.
ESA Florida Youth Scholarship Program
CSG Community Program Dino De Rose presented the ESA Youth Scholarship Program award winner to Summer Moon and her parents, Linda and Ben Moon Lieutenant DeLand Police Department. Summer will be attending the University of Florida this fall and plans to be a medical doctor.
In 1996, the Electronic Security Association launched the Youth Scholarship Program. The program was created to promote goodwill among the electronic life safety and security industry and police and fire officers by providing college scholarship awards to their deserving sons or daughters. Awards are based on a combination of academic achievement, national test scores, extracurricular participation and the essay. In addition to completing the application and submitting the appropriate documentation, each student must write an essay explaining “What it means to me to have my parent or guardian involved in securing our community.”
