Coosa Valley Credit Union has joined with the National Safe Place program to make each of its branches in Rome, Cartersville, Cedartown and Rockmart a “Safe Place” for children and
teens 18 and under to go if they find themselves in trouble. National Safe Place is an outreach program designed to provide access to immediate help and safety for all youth in crisis. “Locally, Safe Place is a community initiative that designates schools, fire stations, libraries and youth-friendly businesses as Safe Place sites where youth can access help and supportive resources.
We are very excited to have Coosa Valley Credit Union join us as a Safe Place site.” stated Marian Barber, Flowering Branch Children’s Shelters Volunteer Coordinator and local Safe Place Coordinator. “Safe Place locations extend the doors of the local youth service agencies or shelters to help create a community safety net for children in crisis situations. The Safe Place program has even developed a texting system so youth can get help when needed even faster.”
Ron Tomlinson President/CEO of Coosa Valley Credit Union stated “This program is just one more way that Coosa Valley Credit Union gives back to the communities we serve. As a Father
and Grandfather, I am proud to join with businesses like QT and Southwest Airline among others and offer our branches as a haven for any child that finds themselves in crisis.” To find a Safe Place just look for the Yellow Safe Place and for more information on how you or your business can become involved, go to www.nationalsafeplace.org.
