My closest friend is in the third abusive relationship since we've been friends. I lost my best friend from my high school years to domestic violence and come from a family that sees women who don't obey them in adulthood as property absent without leave. I do not want to lose another friend to domestic violence. I know how prevalent it is in our society. I appreciate your site being here because when my friend is going through a rough patch I use this website to remind me of all the things I learned in 1997 when I left my own abusers.

There are no words to describe how much Safe Places has helped me. i was distraught. No one believed that I had been raped. Even my own family doubted my story. It meant so much that the Safe Places counselor just believed me and made sure I was OK. It was a horrendous experience, but I had the very best advocate.

I have been a donor for many years because safe Places did so much for my entire family. I will continue to give substantially to make sure that this organization is able to continue doing the work it does so professionally and with a great deal of heartfelt care. It is very easy for others who do not know to speak ill of another organization, but it is impossible to speak ill of this one when you truly believe they have saved your life and the lives of your children. I urge any and all persons to try to help Safe Places continue for many years into the future through volunteering and giving all that you can. My children are a testament to their work and not just for a few months. We have worked with them for almost eight years.

The Great!

The fact that my children are safe in a state I thought we would never settle in. We have been healthy and happy , even while dealing with issues cause by the aftermath of severe violence.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Endow it fully

What specific problem, purpose, priority, or project prompted your gift?

This organization has always needed community support and I was more than happy to offer it. But now, they need help more than ever, and I will help them.

Why did you make your donation at this time?

Because a few people deliberately attempted to harm this organization and it is a shameful set of behaviors that brought them to this time of need.

What would you tell others about this organization?

Consider the good they do for so many children and families and the broad services they provide from rape, to domestic violence, school violence, bullying, trafficking and most importantly child abuse and child sexual abuse. There is no organization as knowledgeable.

I was being bullied in school real bad. Safe Places helped me a lot. I tried to understand why they were doing it and I thought it was because of me. But Safe Places gave me confidence to know that I was OK, and those other kids just had problems that made them feel better about themselves when they put somebody down. Safe Places really listens to us.

Safe Places is a stellar organization. They are professional, but always accessible to every person that needs them. It really does not matter how someone has been victimized. They are present with quality services.

Safe Places is the ONLY place I refer my clients who have been victims of sexual assault, domestic violence, or child abuse. They have years of expertise in these areas and have even worked with a young women I referred who is a victim of sex trafficking. They are professionals and experts in the field of victim advocacy. The only ones around with this level of competence.

I have been a donor for almost seven years and there is no other nonprofit anywhere that makes use of what they have and stretches their money like this one. The staff has always worked very hard to serve victims. And they have served so many of them, men and women, boys and girls. I am amazed at their work with children and families.

The Great!

I know many of the victims served and see how their lives have been enriched.

Find a way for funding to be ongoing and steady so that they can maintain staff and services

Safe Places has been life saving for our family. We have been in the struggles of violence for years, family violence and abuse of our children. Safe Places was there when we needed help and has been there for us every day since if we asked for help.

Safe Places to me, is exactly what the name says. I had the chance to work with elite experienced staff. I helped teach intervention to at risk teens and could not believe how hard some of the lives of our youth really are. Being able to share my experiences with the group and listen to there problems, I became more than a advocate. To some of the youth I became a confidant, someone they could actually trust. I do believe that Safe Places changes lives for the community and families who believe in the organization.
