OMNI Community Credit Union awarded a “Give Back” grant to a local shelter organization, S.A.F.E Place, which helps thousands of domestic abuse victims and their children.
The $5,000 grant helps the shelter provide services to victims at no cost.
“S.A.F.E. Place is an organization that is invaluable,” says Ted Parsons, CEO of OMNI Community Credit Union, Battle Creek, Mich. “Helping domestic violence victims by giving them the peace of mind that they are safe and don’t have to worry about money at such a difficult time is vital. We are proud to be given the opportunity to help these families.”
CUNA President/CEO Jim Nussle said Thursday that the field-of-membership rule changes proposed by the National Credit Union Administration at its open board meeting will provide greater choice for consumers, as well as flexibility for credit unions to better serve their communities.
