I have been volunteering with Project Safe for nearly 3 years, and my volunteer experiences eventually lead me to an internship position with Project Safe. Throughout my experiences with Project Safe, both volunteering and interning, I found that I am constantly blown away be the amount of time, energy, heart, and passion that the women of Project Safe put into their work. The staff at Project Safe truly make every volunteer feel valued, whether you are donating a meal for a support group, helping with childcare, or interning and working directly with clients. Aside from making volunteers and interns feel welcomed and appreciated, Project Safe goes above and beyond to meet and exceed the needs of their clients. I feel so honored to have had the opportunity to volunteer and intern with such a great organization.

I'm currently finishing up my summer internship with Project Safe, and I can really say that it has been one of the best, most valuable experiences of my life. The staff members are so helpful to each other, the clients, the interns, and just everyone in general; they're all incredible advocates and I really do aspire to be more like these selfless women. Everything Project Safe does is with their clients in mind--from the thrift store to the shelter to their outreach services. Project Safe has helped me confirm that I want to become a social worker and that I want to help women in domestic violence situations, and for that I am so thankful.

Project Safe is truly an amazing organization. I have never before had the pleasure of working around such good-hearted and hard-working staff. In every crisis situation, PSI staff has always managed to provide some sort or relief and/or assistance to those in need. Staff, interns, and volunteers constantly go above and beyond what their job demands of them to make residents and clients as comfortable as possible. I'm so privileged to have had the opportunity to be a part of what this organization does for the community.

Project Safe is an outstanding organization in our community that provides services and emergency shelter to victims of domestic violence. As a student intern, I have had the pleasure of working very closely with the staff, who are all very dedicated towards fulfilling the goals and mission of Project Safe. With 90 cents of each dollar going towards services and programs, Project Safe is able to ensure that the needs of their clients are met in an efficient manner. Domestic violence is a multifaceted issue, and I believe that rather than just treating the symptoms of domestic violence, Project Safe works tediously to end domestic violence all together. The passion of the people and volunteers behind Project Safe is contagious, and their passion translates into successful outcomes for clients.

I was granted an amazing, informative, memorable opportunity to work as a student intern/ volunteer at Project Safe. Project Safe is truly an amazing, caring organization that undeniably fulfills its mission statement to work to end domestic violence through various supportive programs and services. The work of this organization can be quite challenging at times but the success stories of survivors of domestic violence is remarkably rewarding. I both cherish and embrace every opportunity and experience working with Project Safe because this organization truly defines the meaning of giving back to the community and protects and serves every survivor that reaches out for assistance. I give this organization a 5 star rating because Project Safe and its dedicated staff truly impacted my life personally and professionally.- CW

Project Safe is one of the best nonprofits I have had the pleasure of working with and everyday I am constantly amazed by the hard work all of PSI's staff, interns, and volunteers do. Working in a crisis environment can be difficult at times but no matter what the situation is, Project Safe does whatever they can to help those in need of assistance. Whether it is providing emergency confidential shelter, providing access to counseling and support groups, helping clients get a Temporary Protective Order to ensure their safety, or providing a voucher for our thrift store for much needed items, Project Safe is always there to help those trying to recover from domestic violence.

Before I became involved with Project Safe, I had very little knowledge about domestic violence and how prevalent it is in our society. The extensive services that Project Safe provides to the public are amazing and they are helping to make a difference in the lives of individuals. Every program and service has a benefit to it and this nonprofit is one of the most successful ones I have ever worked with.

I am a current intern with Project Safe and working with them has been one the best experiences of my college career. The staff here are always willing to go above and beyond to help our clients. I am exceedingly proud to say that I am a part of Project Safe, and I hope to continue my involvement with this organization for many years to come.

I've had many jobs and internships but interning at Project Safe has been one of the greatest learning experiences I've had so far. From experience, I know that being within a household of domestic violence can be horrible and having a safe place to go can make a huge difference in someone's life. Project Safe provides a safe, clean, and helping environment to improve the lives of our clients. Working for Project Safe has allowed me to enhance my skills to be able to work in the public sector.

I volunteer at Project Safe Thrift Store when I can. It amazes me how generous the donations are and how there is always a steady flow of shoppers. Everyone is very helpful and friendly. I tell everyone I know, if you are going to donate to any organization, use Project Safe because I know all the profits go to a great cause.
