Four complete child-safety workshop
Sunday, November 4, 2012
Linda Stephens, Gwen Littleton, Jennie Mattox and Sonya Freeman received a certificate of completion on Oct. 30 after spending five weeks in The Cottage’s Ambassador of Child Safety program. The workshop series works to increase awareness and education methods used in prevention, recognition and the reporting of child sexual abuse. During the five-week program participants learned about healthy sexual development in children and teens, child health, local resources for parents, self care for survivors of sexual abuse, steps to prevent sexual abuse and to recognize and report sexual abuse and more.
The Cottage Sexual Assault and Children’s Advocacy Center works to provide intervention, advocacy, referrals, and support for survivors and families impacted by child abuse and sexual assault. The Ambassador of Child Safety Program is co-sponsored by The Cottage, Athens Housing Authority and Whatever It Takes.

The Darius Goes West Foundation will ask supporters to take a giant leap Tuesday when it kicks off its annual series of fundraising events in Atlanta with the new television show “Dare Me For Charity”.
In June, Keith Arrowood with Junk South presented a $750 check to Extra Special People Executive Director Laura Whitaker. The money was raised through Junk South’s new donation matching program, in which the company partners with a different nonprofit each month and raises funds by offering clients a chance to make a donation to the charity when Junk South picks up items for removal. The public also can make donations to the program. For more information about Junk South and the program, visit www.junksouth.com.
