Project Safe is a world-class non-profit. I have served on a number of boards, both national and local, in the non-profit world. This organization has a terrific mission and carries it out extremely well. I honestly believe that it has the best "brand" of any local charity in this college town in which there are tons of really good charities who do excellent work. I was a longtime donor who was then asked to participate in the Dancing with the Athens Stars fundraiser. Through my participation in that, I learned what wonderful work was being done by the organization. I was eager to join the Board and to take a leadership position. The staff, headed up by an all-star executive director who possesses a good head for numbers combined with a great passion for the mission of protection of the victims of domestic violence, is hardworking and committed. Overhead is extremely low and the Board is an active and engaged one. All in all, a super organization doing much needed work on behalf of those who need the assistance. I recommend it highly to prospective donors and volunteers.
