I have volunteered many times to watch and keep the kids of the clients for SHIELD Foundation occupied during meetings and I have seen how much this organization has helped a great number of people. They have contacts with shelters for emergency situations for the clients and really do care for the people they help. As a non-profit organization, they don't make much of any profit at all, but seeing the people they bring aid to smile is worth more than anything else to SHIELD.

I am working for S H I E L D from 2002, and from that time has helped hundreds families to resolve their issues, and to get out of the Domestic Violence situation. My desire to help based on my own hard experience of Domestic Violence in the family, and my personal understanding of all issues and concerns during ongoing process of recovery from it. The most important for me in my work with the victims of Domestic Violence is the result! and the best result - is to see the smile on their faces, and their progress in social and professional life. To recover their self esteem, immigration status, deal with divorce, criminal, civil cases going parallel to each other is very hard and takes approximately two years, and never before I saw other organization, which can help in all of those issues with such good results. Our revictimization ratio is less than 2%, and I am very proud of it and proud for those victims and their dependent children, who recover from Domestic Violence with our help!

I am very grateful to SHIELD Foundation, their staff and their volunteers for the help they provided to me with my case, in a time when everyone else had turned away, and were not able to help, or even stopped all contact with me. SHIELD has done the best for me, and fast and free of charge. All of the "experts" out there that I contacted first, were not interested, and were very negative about my case, and now the same people have nothing to say, since it is completed without them. Thanks again to SHIELD.

Teen Lifeline is a wonderful organization that gives a lifeline to troubled teens. Teen Lifeline provides confidential, supervised peer counseling to teenagers when they feel alone, scared and are contemplating taking their own lives. It is a safe place for those teenagers to receive valuable information to help them deal with their problems. In addition to helping troubled teens, the teen counselors themselves receive valuable training in life skills as well as make long lasting friendships among their peer counselors. I have heard many moving stories from these teens describing their own struggles and using their training and friendships to find a path forward. The adult counselors/supervisors and administrators are very experienced and caring. I can't say enough good things about Teen Lifeline!

A friend of mine had difficult family issues for some time, and after trying many other options and services, contacted SHIELD case manager for assistance. The difference in service was immediate and very positive, and the issues were resolved without the additional expenses and other people getting involved. My friends issues were resolved in her favor, despite many other experts who were previously insisting that it can not be done. Knowing what we know now, I will recommend anyone who needs effective help in a difficult situation ask for it from SHIELD.

SHIELD is a great organization that I had a great pleasure to volunteer with. I helped watch some of the clients children while the clients themselves were in a meeting. My job was to keep the children occupied until the meeting was over. We played a few games, hide and seek being one of them, and then got together some paper and pencils and drew. I also taught them to fold paper airplanes which we went outside to fly.

S H I E L D Foundation helps those who need it most, when no one else can or wants to. Individuals that are given assistance by the S H I E L D staff, are greatly advanced in their sincere effort to better themselves. Unfortunately, not all are able to be helped due to budget and staff constraints that all assistance service providers face in the recent year. Great service, great staff keep it up !

I would like to thank the Russian center for all their work. My son needed help after his car accident and my husband and I didn't know who to turn to. He was disabled by the accident, could not work anymore, lost his job and I did not know where to go. I called Shield and they helped us find a disability law firm and helped with our first meeting with them. Now the process is well on it's way and soon everything should be taken care of. I couldn't have done this without Olga and the rest of Shield and would like to thank them from the bottom of my heart.

Shield Foundation was life changing in their help with a domestic violence marriage/divorce that I found myself in. They helped me with the legal/court system, documents and filings. I was afraid of what my ex-husband would do physically and legally during this time. I was protected and made to feel secure at one of their locations. I cannot thank them enough for the support and guidance they gave me during a very difficult time in my life. "Thank you - thank you, thank you.
