Security Service Charitable Foundation Donates $10,000 to Homeless Women's Shelter

EL  PASO,  TX  –  FEBRUARY  1,  2019 - The  Security  Service  Charitable  Foundation  has   presented  $10,000  to  Villa  Maria. Located  in  downtown  El  Paso,  just  across  the  border  from   Juarez,  Mexico,  Villa  Maria  provides  women  a  home  to  transition  from  crisis  to  self-­‐sufficiency   while  living  in  a  safe,  supportive  and  spiritual  community.       

“This  generous  $10,000  donation  from  Security  Service  will  be  used  towards  rehabilitating  21 bathrooms  that  are  in  disrepair,”  said  Linda  Velarde,  executive  director  for  El  Paso  Villa  Maria. “Currently,  plastic  bags  are  taped  around  holes  to  prevent  water  from  seeping  through, showerheads  and  faucets  are  broken, and shelving  is  rotting. Fixing  these  bathrooms  will  help   improve  the  quality  of  life  for  our  residents.”         

Residents range in age from 18  to  73  years old and usually  stay 10  to 14  months. All  residents are without  financial assistance. Many have been victims of domestic  violence; struggle with major mental health issues; suffer from alcohol, drug or gambling  addictions; and have children in foster homes awaiting family reunification.     

“Who we are as a community depends greatly on how we care for our most vulnerable members,” said  Derrick  Aguilar, senior vice president of member service—Mountain  Region for Security Service.  Everyone deserves a  place of  safety where they can heal and hopefully reemerge in a state of self-­‐sufficiency.  We are honored to  help  El Paso Villa Maria through this $10,000 donation as they work to provide a home  for  women  in  need.”     

The  Security  Service  Charitable  Foundation  helps  further  Security  Service  Federal  Credit  Union’s corporate  goal  of  community  service  by  contributing  to  deserving  organizations  and  causes  in   the  credit  union's  market  areas.   

The  Security  Service  Charitable  Foundation  was  created  to  reinforce  Security  Service’s  commitment  to  the   community  by  contributing  to  deserving  organizations  and  causes  that  benefit  the  community  and  help  to  improve   the  quality  of  life  for  its  citizens.    The  Security  Service  Charitable  Foundation  is  a  Texas  Non-­‐profit  Corporation  and   federal  public  charity  that  was  incorporated  in  2007  and  is  the  charitable  arm  of  Security  Service  Federal  Credit   Union.       

Security  Service  Federal  Credit  Union  offers  competitive,  affordable  financial  products  and  services  designed  to   meet  the  needs  of  its  members.  Security  Service  is  an  industry-­‐leading  financial  institution  with  locations  in  Texas,   Colorado  and  Utah.  The  credit  union  is  among  the  top  credit  unions  in  the  nation.  Security  Service  strives  to  be   America’s  best  credit  union  and  provides  the  true  benefits  of  credit  union  membership  with  financial  services  of   the  highest  quality  and  value.  Learn  more  at  www.ssfcu.org  or  call  1-­‐800-­‐52-­‐SSFCU.
