Introducing . . . . "Safe Haven Drive"

Choosing a new street name can be a little tricky. We found out from the Harrison/Taylor Addressing and Mapping Coordinator that any new road name must be unique to all Harrison County. Since there is already a Genesis Boulevard in the area, the search was on for another name. The number is based on a frontage scale and is assigned according to the distance from the main road.

We wanted a name that described the essence of our programs. One that lets children know they are entering a secure and welcoming place and we turned to our mission statement: Genesis Youth Crisis Center, Inc., providing a safe haven for children that fosters hope.

And so, 192 Safe Haven Drive, here we come. Hopefully, this summer will see us providing services in our new facility. Here, our hard-working Executive Director shows his enthusiasm for the move.
