Love what Kathy Findley and Safe Places is doing. Having grown up with a verbally abusive alcoholic father myself I truly understand their mission. How much better my pre-teen years might have been had there been a place like "Safe Places" for me. So proud to have been able to be a part of their Cinderella Balls and provide our services to such a great cause.

Sincerely, Karen Garriott- www.princesscarriage.com

Safe Places has been helping my family for many years in ways that no other organization was able to do. The staff has always been sensitive to my needs and given me hope when I had lost hope. I am proud to be both a client and a supporter.

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

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

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

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

the work they did with a family I know in which there was child abuse of three children. The results were amazing and they worked with these children for many years.

Why did you make your donation at this time?

There is always a critical need, and i wanted to be sure this nonprofit becomes solidly funded.

What would you tell others about this organization?

Please make a commitment to a monthly contribution and ask all your friends to do the same. We need Safe Places in our state.

Safe Places serves Little Rock in a much needed capacity. It's a life saver for so many women and children who would never receive the protection, support and comfort they so badly need. Safe Places also goes into our schools to teach our children that "Hands are not for hitting." and other nonviolent responses. Little Rock would definitely be a poorer place to live without these life fulling people at Safe Places.

Safe Places serves Little Rock not only through safe harbor but also through education. Because our country has so much violence in the homes, on the streets, on television, and in the news, our children are so in need of alternative choices. Safe Places serves that need.

Safe Places not only serves children and women touched by violence, it trains young women about violence prevention so that they can intervene in young lives. The entire Safe Places staff is passionate about the clients they serve and preventing violence before it escalates.

I see how they try to help a young friend of mine and her daughter. I am so grateful for their work.

I wish Safe Places could expand here in Little Rock and be a model for other safe places around the world. The are constrained by the available monetary resources.

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!

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

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.

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.

Arkansas has one of the highest rates of child abuse and domestic violence in the US. Families and individuals need the important life-saving skills provided by the professional staff at Safe Places. They also receive life-changing encouragement and hope to face the future. Safe Places has an outstanding director, Kathy Manis-Findley, and a team of dedicated and professional counselors on staff to help in any situation. Thanks to Safe Places for providing critical services to our most vulnerable people.

After finding out that my daughter was the victim of sexual abuse, I was shocked at the lack of available help. With the opening of Safe Places, our city now has a wonderful resource for information, counseling, and support. I am particularly impressed with the education they provide to help the next generation solve this epidemic. I am blessed to be able to offer monthly financial support to this worthy cause. I feel very strongly in the importance of their work.
