Safe Places is an organization for families to begin to put the pieces of their lives back together piece by piece. Violence is an ugly monster that has destroyed so many families. Thank God for an organization like this one that understands the cycle of violence and the affects that it has on the family as a whole. The group of professionals at Safe Places have the knowledge, understanding, and compassion to work with the hurting population and allow them to heal at their own pace while they walk alongside them.

The people at Safe Places have proven themselves to be fully committed to advocacy and service. This is one of the most caring groups of people I have had the privilege to work with. In the face of tremendous cut-backs and the struggle to keep the doors open, they still went above and beyond in their level of service to all clients in need. Thank heavens Arkansas has Safe Places.

My experience with Safe Places has been one that is empowering, empathetic, thought provoking, spiritually uplifting, and personally and professionally inspiring. The individuals that I meet on a daily basis despite their trauma's have all played an enormous part in my growth as an advocate, counselor, facilitator, and motivator. I am so blessed to meet individuals who have decided to speak out and receive support and take back the control that was once robbed from them. It is humbling and out of respect for the many that I see and talk too, that I am able to extend myself in support of this organization and the individuals that cross our doorstep or call our hot-line. I also can't say how much I respect and admire the ladies that I work with who extend themselves above and beyond the call of duty. We BELIEVE!

Safe Places empowers women and children to take control back in their lives. By serving clients who have experienced severe trauma, either through domestic or sexual violence, Safe Places provides a safe and comfortable place to express fears and hopes. The staff is completely client- centered, and works to meet immediate needs and help plan for future goals. I truly believe there is no other agency in the Little Rock area that provides services to such a broad population. Safe Places deals with the after effects of violent crimes, and works with community organizations to prevent future violence. This holistic approach shows the center's dedication to ending violence against men, women, and children.
