Reviews for Kidsafe Foundation

Rating: 5 stars  

Kidsafe Foundation works to provide a foundation for you and the kids in your life. They educate using an approachable and understandable program to inform parents, caregivers, and kids about topics that are many times brushed under the rug because of the uncomfortable nature of many of the topics. With the speed of technology today it is important that we use as many of the tools offered to us to protect and educate our kids . Kidsafe Foundation provides these tools and has shown that their tools work. Matt R.

The term "win/win/win" is commonly used in the retail business world to describe a successful outcome between a customer, a manufacturer and a retailer. I get it. Everyone in that relationship wins. At the end is all about profit and consumer satisfaction.
However, in the world of non profit, a "win/win/win" relationship goes much deeper than that.
At the KidSafe Foundation we have the perfect example of true success where the parents, teachers and kids win all around. At our foundation they all learn personal safety skills to protect themselves and others against child sexual abuse, internet dangers and bullying. Now, that's what I call a true WIN!!!

I first listened to Sally (co-founder) at our kid's school about 5-6 years ago. What an eye opener! To think that "stranger danger" is a thing of the past and so many people we know could be impacted by child sexual abuse, bullying and/or internet dangers (or be a predator/abuser as well) made a huge impact on me. Along with Cherie, these 2 ladies deserve all our support so we can taker this amazing curriculum to all the schools in the US. Help us, help our kids!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Help them grow their reach with the help of more stakeholders. It takes a village!!!

I am appreciate of the work KidSafe provides and their clear and easy message to both children and adults. Their expertise in the field of child safety is proven and their methods of conveying the information to children in a fun and developmentally appropriate manner is inspiring. They raised my level of awareness about the epidemic of child abuse and gave me concrete skills I can use with my children I work with as well as my own children. Every child and every adult should have this program.

The impact KidSafe has made on the community in which I live in is beyond compare to any other programs that relate directly to the health and well-being of the families it touches. If we can duplicate these efforts throughout all our communities, our children will be the true benefactors of such a wonderful organization

I was introduced to KidSafe by one of the Co-Directors in early summer 2014 and immediately realized the benefits the organization provides in protecting children and parents from the dangers that are inherent in society. Their pro-active approach to keeping kids safe is a much better solution than having to deal with the results of child abuse and bullying. I plan to help KidSafe reach their goal of keeping as many kids safe and healthy.

As a mother of a 6-year-old child, I thought I knew a lot about child dangers; but my experience with Kidsafe Foundation taught me so much more (and realistic strategies I can share with my son). A parent lecture given by co-founder Sally Berenzweig was how I first came to know KidSafe. Sally's presentation (and her genuine enthusiasm to protect kids) inspired me to get more involved in efforts to thwart child sexual abuse. I've since attended several KS lectures geared for professionals (e.g., mental health providers, teachers, school nurses) and an entire 8-week series geared for kindergarteners; the level of knowledge, ability to convey information, and appropriateness for each audience was stellar. Every child should be privileged to learn from KidSafe instructors. The KS founders and Board members are very passionate about the mission of helping kids: There is no other agenda than educating children, parents and teachers! Of the many organizations I volunteer for, KidSafe is the most rewarding.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Make it mandatory for all elementary schools to incorporate KidSafe training into their curricula.

I had the opportunity to hear KidSafe founders speak years ago - I was completely astounded by the statistics and felt the need to get involved. I love what KidSafe as an organization provides. They take a 3 prong approach by not only educating children with important life skills to protect them from Child Sexual Abuse, Bullying and Internet dangers but they also train and education parents, teachers and all professionals working with children in child sexual abuse prevention. KidSafe also has two award winning children's books that help further the learning the program offers.
Because of what i learned i started off as a volunteer - soon became a board member - became Treasurer and now i am beyond honored to be voted at the upcoming Chairman of the Board.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

We are now on the lookout for a new treasurer to replace me - I will be acting as interim Treasurer until that position is filled.

We were all kids and many now have kids. The programs that Kidsafe present are an important tool to add to a parent and child's toolbox. With the information taught we all can become more aware and safe. Thank you Kidsafe for offering a concise program that is easy to implement.
