I had the pleasure of having Debbie as a high school teacher. She was a dedicated teacher and cared more about her students than any other by far. She translated those passionate skills into this program and now is changing the lives of so many people. It's an honor to have someone so valuable in this community. I also went to high school with one of the staff members and he is transforming lives each and every day. I have gotten to know the other staff members and each of them have committed themselves to protecting and promoting the citizens of this community. I fully endorse this organization and would consider it one of the best non-profits around.
I've known and admired Debbie Vought and Citizens for Safe Schools for many years, attended fundraisers and collaborated with staff on issues of common interest in the community. Not until I began volunteering as a mentor earlier this year did I observe the true depth and dedication this program offers to mentees, mentors and the community. The training and support for mentors are excellent. While mentoring is not easy, the highly trained staff is there to prepare and accompany you every step of the way. If you have ever thought about mentoring a young person, try it through Citizens for Safe Schools!
Rip City Riders is proud to have sponsored Citizens for Safe Schools in 2011 and donated profit raised from our Summer Fun Run & Festival. The organization is clearly comprised of an amazing network of people and organizations that work hard to prevent youth delinquency in our community. Rip City Riders selects a worthwhile organization each year to benefit from our annual event held in July. This event requires not only our staff but our beneficiary's staff to participate all year long up to the event to ensure the success of the festival. We are proud to be partnered with Citizen's for Safe Schools and will continue to support them in any way possible in the future.

I have served on the Advisory Council for CFSS for two years and I currently serve on the Board of Directors. I am so proud to be affiliated with CFSS who are far more than dedicated to serving the young people in our community. CFSS is devoted to researching, tackling and solving problems of today’s youth - and examples of such is shown through their trustworthy mentoring, outreach programs, and state-of-the-art youth symposiums (to name just a few)! Klamath County is blessed to have the commitment of the Executive Director, Debbie Vought, as well as CFSS excellent staff!
Review from Guidestar
My children have a scholarship from Citizens For Safe Schools for them to be able to go to Klamath Family Tae Kwon Do. For them to be able to do something like this has done so much for them. With being more respectful to their Teachers and Family. Learning responsibility for themselves. Master Church is a wonderful person and I thank God For the Scholarships that they have to help our kids in need...Thank you
