I experienced this organization first-hand for the first time on November 7, 2009, when I went to the Safe House Restaurant to see the unveiling of the Wall of Honor. I was immediately deeply touched by the caring, loving, supportive atmosphere. It was palpable as I entered the room. I knew right away that this is a vitally important organization, one that provides a safe, caring, understanding haven for families and friends of fallen loved ones. A place where they can be with other people who know the inexplicable, never-ending, horrific pain of this kind of loss. I can't imagine. I think about how hard every day must be and how it goes on and on. Loss is a profound experience, one that I believe we need to share with those who personally understand the particular kind of loss we are living. And when it comes from war, and a war one may not believe in, wow!! Being There Reaching Out is the place families and friends can find that kind of understanding, that kind of special love, that makes a huge difference in their struggle to heal!!

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Selfless, compassionate, loving, caring, understanding.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Expand and provide numerous kinds of healing experiences.
