I found out about Project Safe several years ago when the Executive Director came to speak at an event at my church. I was in an abusive marriage, although I had never thought that the definition of domestic violence actually applied to me. After all, I was a professional woman with a doctorate; I didn't fit the stereotype. What I learned from Project Safe, though, was that domestic violence crosses all boundaries, and it can happen to anyone. The presentation at my church gave me the courage to go to my office the next morning, close the door, and pick up the phone to call the Hot Line. Talking to the Project Safe staff member on the Hot Line clarified everything for me. She was immediately understanding and concerned about my situation, and she helped me with every step I needed to take to break free. She might have saved my life. After this experience I served for several years on the Project Safe Board of Directors and was president for one term. I have never seen a non-profit so well run and so effective in fulfilling its mission. Domestic violence is a hidden epidemic that affects more people than we know. The staff at Project Safe work tirelessly, literally around the clock, to save victims from the terror. We are a better community for it.
