The Safety program based out of central Iowa has been touring the country for 15 years. They have provided thousands of families with fingerprint records for their children along with helpful safety information and valuable community connections. Lytishya Borglum, founder of the Keeping Kids Safe Project and mother of five says, “ Our goal is not just to provide fingerprint records in case something happens but to hold events to raise awareness, spread resources and connect communities so we can take a pro-active approach to safety and hopefully help prevent awful situations from arising.”
All activities will take place from 10:00 am until 4:00 pm at 4700 West Chester Pike inside the Rafferty Subaru building where they have generously provided space and sponsored the event keeping everything free for families.

Keeping Kids Safe Project representative, Andrea Houston, will be onsite providing free digital fingerprinting for families that attend, using the Keeping Kids Safe Project’s portable bio-metric fingerprinting system. She is excited to be coming to Newtown Square and adds “Safety and the ever-increasing need to protect ourselves, seems a topic we might all agree on and parents are a child's first line of defense. Keeping Kids Safe Project arms families with important tools needed to deescalate an emergency, saving time and ultimately saving lives.” Keeping Kids Safe Project ensures all families that there are absolutely no records kept of a family’s visit, no personal information is shared or requested, to safeguard the family’s privacy and keep information from being data-based or recorded. Each family will get a fingerprint record with prints and a photo of their child and they will fill in the personal information once in the safety of their own home. The record can then be stored with the child’s school photos and can be handed over immediately to law enforcement should the need arise.
