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!!
"This is a great organization helping educate communities and schools at protecting children from abuse."
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.
