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.

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.

There is no adequate way to measure the impact this organization has on the health and welfare of our local community. Safe Places has performed its mission with dedication and determination, often in the face of local criticism, but has garnered much professional recognition from across the country, including the Director of the FBI and the Attorney General of the United States. The selfless commitment of its advocates to the welfare of their clients is a model that many should adopt.

I understand all your comments but as a victim you need to do your own research. Under the Freedom of Information Act, I asked the DFA to provide me some information. I could not believed what I received. There are a lot of information to be found. This is unbelievable! The mission is very important to all of us but not when it comes to mismanagement of money. And yes I have been a victim, and I know what pain is. So disappointed....from what could have been the next great organization here in Little Rock.

I have worked with many victim service organizations as a professional in this field. There are simply none with the range of programs and the quality services of Safe Places. I am not from Arkansas, but they have a gem in Safe Places.

Safe Places consistently advocates for the protection of women, children, and especially young women through their Cinderella program. I am a social worker locally and always have confidence when referring clients to Safe Places. This is an agency that consistently thinks outside of the box to best serve clients, regardless of financieal means or barriers.

If you're looking for an expert in the field of children and families, Safe Places is the one. Safe Places has a staff of committed professionals who work with victims of violence whether through counseling, support groups, domestic abuse, sessions with children who may be harmed by violence in schools, afterschool programs, or juvenile detention centers. They don't have an 8 to 5 job. They are there for those families day or night. Safe Places staff really cares about children and families.

Safe Places is a refuge for women and children in danger.It is great to know we have a program of this caliber in Little Rock serving women and children in crisis. They operate on a shoestring and need ongoing support for their work. Kathy Findley is an inspiration to me and to most anyone who meets her. Her life work is manifested in Safe Places.
