I interned with Project Safe for my senior year Social Work practicum from August to May. The work done by this self-less and dedicated staff is astounding - working with Project Safe I was able to experience facilitating support groups for children and adults at the shelter and the outreach department, answering the crisis hotline, advocating for legislation, and a multitude of other programs and opportunities. Project Safe serves victims of domestic violence through numerous avenues, working to assist women, children, and even men, affected by violence and abuse. With so many programs, the agency has many opportunities for volunteers. Having spent 9 months with the agency as an intern, I was able to see the large impact that interns and volunteers can have - Project Safe truly needs the help of people willing to volunteer their time for the cause of working to end violence in the Athens community. I highly recommend becoming involved with Project Safe, for the benefit of both the clients using services and the community members volunteering.
