Northeast Community Credit Union recently donated $500 to the Shepherd’s Inn.

The Shepherd’s Inn is Carter County’s only safe house and emergency shelter for women and their children who are seeking shelter from domestic violence or temporary homelessness.

The Shepherd’s Inn began providing emergency shelter to women and children in 1997. Since then, thousands of clients have received confidential emergency shelter, meals and other forms of aid.

Donations to Shepherd’s Inn can be made by mail to P.O. Box 2214, Elizabethton, TN 37644 or by contacting Shepherd’s Inn at (423) 542-1080.

Northeast Community Credit Union has been serving the community since October 1952 when it was chartered as a credit union by the State of Tennessee. Northeast Community Credit Union is a not-for-profit financial cooperative. It is open to anyone who lives, works, worships or attends school in Carter, Johnson, Washington, Unicoi and Sullivan counties along with their immediate family members.
