Safe Places has the very best service anywhere. They worked with me for over two years and I was able to literally change my life from terror to safety.

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.

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 one of a kind organization which Little Rock, AR is fortunate to have among our community as a real team player. They work to continually find ways to serve the victims and families of Domestic violence, Rape and Molestation in many ways. Most people would be shocked to really know all involved in treating and assisting in these tragic and unfortunate situations that our society wishes would just go away. They have saved our daughters life and certainly helped our family to move forward and continue to grow.

My sister wwent to Safe Places and got so much help. We both did. And our mom was so glad that they had a way to help her too. Our mom was really upset with everything that had happened to my sister at school. All of us were so upset we wanted to move away, But because of the ladies at safe Places, all of us got through it. It took time, but they stuck with us all the way.

My child was sexually abused and Safe Places was there for both of us. It was a very long road to getting over the most horrible time in my life, but Safe Places worked with my whole family , as well as my child. We have had help from safe Places for many years and in all kinds of ways. With my child's school problems related to severe bullying, with her inability to attend school because of panic attacks, with almost every challenge you can imagine. All I can say is thank you to this wonderful group of people who really do care about my family, and even my other children.

My family was completely destroyed by violence from my spouse against me. My four children suffered from being exposed to that violence for many years. I truly believed that I could not raise 4 children on my own. So I was trapped and had no idea how to get me and my children into a safer place. That's when I found a safe place in Safe Places. Their work was definitely a family intervention and not only was I supported, but they cared for my children as well. I tried many organizations for help over many years, and there is just none that match the kind of help Safe Places offered. Today, we are safe, on our own and thriving. From time to time, Safe Places is still there if we need help and that is so comforting. As my children grow up, issues do arise because they did not get out unharmed at all. But Safe Places helps us work through those times.
