Review from Guidestar
Rating: 5 stars  

I was lucky to have the chance to intern with Project Safe Inc. this past spring. I learned so much about how a successful non-profit operates, and so much more. The devoted staff worked around the clock, 7 days a week, to provide help to victims of domestic violence in the Athens community. They are a wonderful group of people and I was very proud to be a small part of such an amazing organization. Project Safe raised $150,000 this year at their Dancing With the Athens Stars spring fundraising event- and all-time high! I look forward to seeing Project Safe's continued success in the future.

I found out about Project Safe when David Hale was donating the proceeds of one of his tattoos to them. Not sure exactly what they did, I looked into their services, and found out just how much they do for the community here. I decided to volunteer, and it has been one of the most rewarding, empowering, and humbling experiences of my life.

It's rewarding to be able to directly help those in need and to see how much good this organization does not only in the lives of those it directly helps, but also to the community as it advocates for awareness and policy changes to eliminate domestic violence in the future.
It's empowering to see people who are capable of overcoming anything, rising from situations of extreme abuse to become confident, independent, and successful individuals. It inspires you to think about all that you can accomplish if you put your mind to it.
And finally, this has been such a humbling experience. So often, we can lose sight of the many gifts we have, whether that's money, education, resources, loving family, or supportive friends. Working with people who truly appreciate life's gifts reminds us all to look at what we have in our own lives.

Reminds us to share it, make the most of it, and to give back with our time and our money to organizations like Project Safe that work to make the lives of everyone in the community a little bit better, a little bit more loving, and a little bit safer.

Project Safe provides an invaluable service to our community. They help give a voice to the victims that otherwise might have nowhere to turn. They offer amazing support groups both to the victims and their children. I feel honored to volunteer for such a group.

Project Safe has exceeded my expectations of what I thought I would get out of an internship. I entered not knowing how I would be working with other interns and staff. Now working with the other members of the Project Safe Team is one of the highlights on my job. The staff I work with are all willing to answer questions and problem-solve with you. I will surely miss all the great people I've met and been mentored from whenever I have to leave.

Interning with Project Safe has had a profound impact on my life because I can take pride in knowing that I work with such a powerful organization that always does everything they can to help someone who is experiencing domestic violence. I have personally witnessed Project Safe go above and beyond when it comes to helping their clients, and I am confident that the Project Safe employees will always do everything in their power to help someone who is in need of their services. I am so proud and inspired everyday to work for such a dedicated and honest organization.

Project Safe in Athens is a truly amazing organization. As an intern here, I've had the chance to see the ins and outs of this organization and how each and every situation is handled with grace, care, and love. Not only that, but the staff is caring, considerate, and is composed of some of the most incredible people I have ever met. Project Safe's unwavering support of victims of domestic violence is the perfect example of how a nonprofit should function. Keep up the good work!

I did community service at the Project Safe thrift store, and it was a good place to do work. The people there were generally focused and kind and seemed to really care about their work and the people they were helping.

I have volunteered this past year with Project Safe and they are a great organization! They work hard to help each and every person that comes through whether a resident, hotline caller, or outreach client. I'm excited to be a part of such an awesome organization!
