Safe Places is an incredible organization that serves child and adult victims of violence. When someone who has been hurt seeks out their help, the staff is present with them all the way, for as long as they need help. From the time a person is victimized, through the time of trauma, to what is sometimes very difficult court situations, the Safe Places staff is there to help and to stand up for the rights of the victim.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

watching the staff interact with people in so many situations.

Find a way to increase staff to meet the community's need.
