Спасибо большое Оленьке, которая помогла нам в решении многих наших вопросов,касающихся нашего дальнейшего существования. Также Оля помогла составить моё резюме- с кропотливой точностью Оля отразила все нюансы моей профессиональной деятельности. Теперь я ищу работу, прикладывая это резюме. Невозможно даже заполнить , так как все требуют его. Мы будем её помнить всю нашу жизнь. Спасибо администрации Русского Центра помощи "ЩИТ"(правильно?название организациии), что у них работают такие профессионалы. Оленька! Желаем тебе дальнейших успехов на всех путях твоей благородной жизни. Очень надеемся познакомиться с тобой в реале !!!

SHEILD provides immediate support, intervention, and assistance for victims of domestic violence, and who are in otherwise desperate situations. They will respond at once and help you through every step of the way. I can’t think of a worthier cause to place my support. Thank you for your efforts, please keep it going!

Thank you, our Friend! SHIELD Foundation is really unique organization, because it can provide high quality emergency intervention services. There is no other organization in Arizona doing it. We are very thankful to our super-volunteers, who will do whatever possible to help victims not only escape from Domestic Violence and prevent more damage to them and to their kids, but to understand their situation, obtain their independents and never to become a victim in the future. Sincerely yours, Olga C. for SHIELD Administration.

There is nothing worse than feeling alone and helpless, and SHIELD is working to make sure no one ever has to feel that way ever. They are committed to responding immediately and provide services to so many kinds of victims through every step of their recovery process. I don’t know where we would be without them.

Thank you Friend! Most of our volunteers and all Administration went trough DV situations themselves. Because of it, we are taking our work very seriously, and committed to our clients. Many of us going through continuous education, workshops, conferences and other available classes to better serve our clients, and be more efficient and successful in the process of help. Sincerely yours, Olga C. for SHIELD Administration.

When I heard about SHEILD, I knew I wanted to donate and get involved. This is an organization that helps people when they really need it the most, and are dedicated to seeing it through to the end. This is such a comfort to those in dangerous situations, who have been victimized and are unsure what to do next. Their services are invaluable.

The S H I E L D Foundation, provides very important services for people in their most vulnerable situations. Having some place to go for shelter, receive an advise on what to do now, get encouragement and basic hope that eventually this situation can be solved is very important especially for woman who is new to the country, and might not have any one to go or ask for help or any resources to support herself and her children. The S H I E L D Foundation provides all their services free of charge, and what is very important for Russian speaking victims on their own language. I am certainly hope that this organization continues their services for years to come in their mission of helping people in their life crisis situations. Thank you.

I first met the members of S H I E L D Foundation when I arrived in Arizona in 2008. The purpose of S H I E L D Foundation is to help and educate people through community building. Its work is service oriented. It has always been ready to help me in clarifying or answering a question or through notarizing a document. Their service doesn't require making appointments or paying fees, it's efficient and free.

The member of this organization took a very active part in putting together International Charity event “New Year Of Kindness” that took place in Scottsdale in January 2012, benefiting children’s home. The knowledge of law, psychology , experience of dealing with legal issues, desire to share the experience and desire to help is an outstanding example of non-profit organization worker performing at a highest level to benefit the community and be a real support for volunteers who often lack these qualities. Thank you so much for your help !

I am working for S H I E L D from 2002, and from that time has helped hundreds families to resolve their issues, and to get out of the Domestic Violence situation. My desire to help based on my own hard experience of Domestic Violence in the family, and my personal understanding of all issues and concerns during ongoing process of recovery from it. The most important for me in my work with the victims of Domestic Violence is the result! and the best result - is to see the smile on their faces, and their progress in social and professional life. To recover their self esteem, immigration status, deal with divorce, criminal, civil cases going parallel to each other is very hard and takes approximately two years, and never before I saw other organization, which can help in all of those issues with such good results. Our revictimization ratio is less than 2%, and I am very proud of it and proud for those victims and their dependent children, who recover from Domestic Violence with our help!

Спасибо, дорогая Оленька, за всё, что ты сделала и делаешь для всех нас! Мы знаем, что твоя жизнь прошла через большие трудности, но то, что это только закалило и научило тебя быть такой стойкой и заботливой об окружающих, говорит нам о том, как надо поступать и подаёт нам всем пример настоящей русской женщины и прекрасной матери!
