The employees truly care about the clients and about raising awareness for domestic violence. The services they provide are incredibly beneficial to victims and survivors. They also care for and show appreciation for their volunteers. Domestic violence is so prevalent in our society and they want to make that known so our community can make a difference.

Project Safe does a good job of being flexible with clients and their needs. Something that I really admire is that they are not super rigid in their services and are willing to help in any way possible. Project Safe really does put the clients and the population served first, even when accepting funds from grants or other constituencies. I love that Project Safe also gets out into the community to help raise awareness for domestic violence and attempt to make real change happen.

I have interned with Project Safe for the past two months as part of my degree program for school. I have thoroughly enjoyed working with them and seeing the impact that they have on members of the community. Project Safe not only does a wonderful job serving people who are dealing with domestic violence, but is also a supportive and fun work environment. I'm very thankful to be working with Project Safe this year and would fully recommend them to anyone seeking their services or anyone wanting to partner with them.

I am an intern with Project Safe. Even though I have only been there for a few months, I already feel like I have learned so much not only about domestic violence but also about the best ways to go about empowering and supporting those we are serving. The people I have worked with are clearly passionate about what they do. They have challenged me to grow, but have shown a great deal of compassion as well. It has been a joy getting to watch every single person involved do something they love, and walk alongside people that often feel they are not worthy of being heard.

I've loved interning with Project Safe - every single employee there is so dedicated and loves the cause. I have learned so much from everyone there, and I know I'll always have someone to ask for advice whenever I start my career.

Project Safe is a wonderful resource for people who have experienced domestic violence. It is a well-respected organization in the community. Project Safe has offered many opportunities for me to help give back. I have enjoyed being a part of this organization.

I chose to volunteer with Project Safe because of its focus on removing women (and, at times, children) from violent domestic environments. While I support other nonprofits through finical contributions, I volunteer my time with Project Safe because I believe that its mission is both vital and a tragic necessity of our modern world. Project Safe is vital in the sense that it provides a safe shelter and metaphorical space for women who have been betrayed and abused by those closest to them. Project Safe is a tragic nonprofit in the sense that it is tragic that any such organization is still needed in this day and age when technological and social advancements should have made domestic violence a dark component of our uncivilized past, not a far too common reality of our present condition. As a man who was raised to respect women (and all peoples regardless of race, gender, orientation, or religion) and treat them with equality and civility, it angers me when I consider what these women have endured and the arduous journey toward reclaiming their lives that they now face. As long as such organizations are needed, I will support them, and I regard Project Safe as an outstanding contributor to the betterment of our society and a representation of social action designed to illuminate a serious and disturbing reality of the modern world

I finished my year long internship with Project Safe this past May. Non profits are messy and complicated, but I found otherwise at Project Safe. The mission behind their work is clear and everything they do is filtered by their reason why! From the executive director down to each child that enters their services, the desire for the organization is clear. Money coming in and money going out is monitored, used, spent and donated according to the needs of the men, women and children needing their assistance. The staff members believe in one another and it translates to the way they care for survivors of domestic violence. Project Safe is unique because it works to end domestic violence on all levels of system change. I could not say more about how wonderful this organization is!

I am currently a junior at the University of Georgia and have been volunteering with Project Safe as a childcare provider since my freshmen year. I have always found working with them to be fulfilling and I have so much admiration for the work they do. The only critique I possess is one of the community for not doing more (the MOST) for this wonderful nonprofit.

I've served on Project Safe's Domestic Violence Task Force since 2006. At present, I serve on the Fatality Review sub-committee. I also volunteer to provide meals for various functions sponsored by Project Safe and have also helped with manpower needed for an annual show.

It is very rewarding to give back to an agency that helps so many needy families.

Project Safe is so much more than a shelter. This organization had its roots as a hot line and has grown in scope and services. Project Safe provides advocacy for people affected by DV -- people who rarely have a voice themselves in front of legislators and policy-makers. The staff provide community outreach, educating many groups across our community and region. They have created a texting service with area teens who can get free guidance and help with dating and other uncomfortable social situations. Housing, transportation and counseling services help scores of women, children and families every year to break free from the chains of control and violence, to find shelter and healing, and to build pathways to health and independence.

Project Safe is one of the rare non-profits that I've worked with that focus so much of the funding to the actual mission of the non-profit. It's amazing what can be done when the focus of the non-profit is actually on helping people. A surprising amount can be done with a small amount of funding and Project Safe is a perfect example of those results.

I recently became a volunteer, my first volunteer duty was great! Project Safe has come a long way since their former days. They have a wonderful system set up to meet the needs of those who really need it. I will continue to support and volunteer my time for such a worthy cause.

In my decade-plus involvement with Project Safe, first as a participant in some of the organizations fundraisers, and now as a board member, I can honestly say I have not come across a more well-run, fiscally-responsible organization. What Project Safe does with the funds, staff and other resources they have far outpaces other organizations much larger than them. Their stellar leadership, creative approach to fundraising and comprehensive support of the people they serve are unparalleled. I wish every community had an organization like Project Safe, and I know we are lucky that we do!
