When things were not going well in my family, Safe Places was always helpful to give me the guidance I needed. I cannot even number the many times they were present with us while we were going through the roughest spots in our lives.

Love what Kathy Findley and Safe Places is doing. Having grown up with a verbally abusive alcoholic father myself I truly understand their mission. How much better my pre-teen years might have been had there been a place like "Safe Places" for me. So proud to have been able to be a part of their Cinderella Balls and provide our services to such a great cause.

Working with Safe Places has been rewarding experience where I was able to come to terms with the abuse that I have experienced in my life by helping young girls deal with the destruction of domestic violence. It has open my eyes to the need to be in ministry in that area of social justice, and it gives me hope that organizations like Safe Places exists.

Safe Places has been helping my family for many years in ways that no other organization was able to do. The staff has always been sensitive to my needs and given me hope when I had lost hope. I am proud to be both a client and a supporter.
