Two of my grandchildren were in a pre-K class that participated in the KidSafe for Kids program. They came home each week from the class talking enthusiastically about what they had learned - beyond important information made fun by the KidSafe approach to safety education. That was two years ago and the kids still use the vocabulary they were taught by the KidSafe instructor. I can't speak highly enough about KidSafe. I know my grandchildren are more safe now because of the education they received from KidSafe.
Four of my five young grandchildren have taken part in the KidSafe for Kids program in their schools, and they read the KidSafe books at home. I can't praise this program enough. The kids often use the KidSafe "language of safety" with each other, and their friends. It's become a part of their lives. I have no doubt they are safer because of it. Thank you KidSafe.
Thank you to KidSafe Foundation for providing me and my children with their life saving programs. After watching my child go through the program I am a believer of the importance of their mission and will do my best to spread the word on their excellent work. Thanks for all you do for the community.
I am a professional in the field. I highly recommend KidSafe Foundation and the education programs they provide to children, parents, teachers and the health care workforce to prevent child sexual abuse, bullying and online exploitation. KidSafe education programs should be mandated in every elementary school.
I am a donor and volunteer for the KidSafe Foundation. I believe in their mission to provide education to protect children from child abuse, bullying and online exploitation. It is important that other donors realize the great importance of preventing abuse BEFORE it begins and quality education programs like KidSafe should start in early childhood. I appreciate their use of a 3 tier approach to protecting children - teaching children, parents and professionals working with children. This is a great model for keeping children safe.
I am a long time donor to KidSafe Foundation. Although I support many charities - KidSafe is one of my favorites. I believe not enough is done to prevent trauma to children and the programs KidSafe provides to children, parents, teachers and professionals is not only a quality program but educates children through fun not fear and provides life skills for adults that are easy to incorporate into everyday parenting. I highly recommend this nonprofit for anyone wanting to protect children from trauma.
I have volunteered for KidSafe Foundation in several capacities – I love what they do – their mission and the people who run KidSafe. The programs they provide our essential to keep our community safe and help our most vulnerable citizens – children!
KidSafe taught my boys safety and how to protect themselves in all kinds of situations. They learned their body is their own, at a young age, as KidSafe came into their pre-school and elementary school. I know, as a parent, I was very relieved and comfortable knowing that my children learned, as much as they did, from KidSafe. This is an amazing organization that deserves all the funding they can get! It is used to keep KidSafe!!!
Kidsafe taught their program at Crosspointe Elementary School and it was a huge success!! Our teachers were impressed and our students were taught valuable life long lessons. Thank you Kidsafe!
Kidsafe is an amazing organization! Their goal is making sure all children and children's parents are aware and to keep kids safe. Parents need to be informed and have the communication open at all times and to know what tools are available in order to keep up with the technology.
Kid safe has great people to work with and the staff is wonderful. We look forward to more exciting and informative events in the near future. Thank you for all you do!!
I have been fortunate to know about KidSafe Foundations services and resources for many years. As a PTA leader in South Florida I have been fortunate to hear from many of our units firsthand how useful and enlightening their members have found the KidSafe programs for both students and parents. They have also participated in 2 Florida PTA statewide Health summits to educate and encourage PTA leaders across the state on how they can help raise awareness about child sexual abuse. I am now an active volunteer with the Kidsafe and have seen firsthand how hard Sally, Cherie and Team are working to prevent child sexual abuse, bullying and internet dangers.
I have been on the Board for the past 2 years and have been able to see first hand how passionate and effective the Staff and Board Members are about keeping Kid's Safe. The organization continues to grow and reach more and more of the children, adults and organizations that can accomplish the critical goal.
I first heard Sally and Cherie speak back in 2004 when I was PTA President at my children's school. I knew then and there that what they had to say, and the knowledge that they had to share was something our parents needed to hear and our children needed to participate in. The following year we brought KidSafe in to the school for a parent lecture. After hearing what Sally and Cherie had to say, parents were volunteering to fund the program in their children's classrooms, as well as entire grades. I am happy to say that 10+ years later, after educating and empowering hundreds , KidSafe continues to educate children and parents alike!
As part of their Board of Directors I continue to be impressed with the passion, programming and partners which want to be part of our message of prevention education to keep our kids safe from child sexual abuse, internet dangers and bullying. Our continued growth speaks to the importance of our mission and the community support to keep sharing it. Here we are opening the doors to our new office in Boca Raton. Come and check us out!
The term "win/win/win" is commonly used in the retail business world to describe a successful outcome between a customer, a manufacturer and a retailer. I get it. Everyone in that relationship wins. At the end is all about profit and consumer satisfaction.
However, in the world of non profit, a "win/win/win" relationship goes much deeper than that.
At the KidSafe Foundation we have the perfect example of true success where the parents, teachers and kids win all around. At our foundation they all learn personal safety skills to protect themselves and others against child sexual abuse, internet dangers and bullying. Now, that's what I call a true WIN!!!

Kidsafe is an amazing organization! Their sole goal is making sure children (and those who work with them) are aware and safe. This should be every parent's goal as well. Plus, they're just great people to work with!
KidSafe Foundation has proved and continues to prove to be an informative organization. They teach both kids and adults! In today's society, a foundation like Kidsafe is critical to let everyone know about the effects of child abuse and how to work collectively to prevent it.
Not one day goes by where the news is filled with heart breaking stores about a child abuse case. People ask/say: how did we miss the signs, why was nothing said, didn't know who to turn to, was afraid etc... KidSafe programs are about keeping children safe by teaching prevention, recognizing those signs. It's a program that needs to be made available to all children, educators and parent to keep our children safe.
Every child should receive this program and every adult needs to know how to keep their children safe. All to often we pay attention and react to a problem - more money needs to go to prevention programs like KidSafe! Child sexual abuse is an epidemic that can be prevented with education.
I am appreciate of the work KidSafe provides and their clear and easy message to both children and adults. Their expertise in the field of child safety is proven and their methods of conveying the information to children in a fun and developmentally appropriate manner is inspiring. They raised my level of awareness about the epidemic of child abuse and gave me concrete skills I can use with my children I work with as well as my own children. Every child and every adult should have this program.
The message that this non -profit sends is vital to our children, just like you teach a kid to cross the street. Our children must learn to be "kidsafe"! I highly recommend that every child receives this program because nothing is more important than our kids and if you think they know this information instinctively, they don't. I love Kidsafe and hope that they can continue to help until all children are educated with this program!
I'm a mom with 2 kids who benefitted from Kidsafe. This program is phenomenal and every child should have access to it. It teaches kids to be safe in a fun, playful manner. As parents, we do everything we can to protect our children. But in an ever-changing world, kids need to know what to do when they are presented with a difficult situation and we aren't by their side. These are life lessons and valuable for everyone. My son used it when a "stranger" in a car approached him and a younger cousin outside, asking for help. He knew exactly what to do and wasn't scared at all. Whether it related to a stranger or to a trusted adult my son knew exactly what to do. Kidsafe empowers kids and adults. Even after many years, we still benefit from the knowledge and lessons!
