SHIELD always was helping me with free consultations by phone or in person when it was necessary for me. SHIELD staff did meet me in their office after business hours and for free. They provided mobile notary services for me for free, when I bought my car, and notarized my russian passport application, when I asked. They were always very friendly and professional.

В моей жизни случились непредвиденые обстоятельства,поскольку я являюсь иммигрантом мне очень была нужна профессиональная помощь, по совету знакомых я обратилась за помощью в SHIELD Foundation Мне была оказана разностороняя подержка как юридически-законодательная так и психологическая, хочу отметить професионализм и конфединтеальность. Благодаря этой подержке мои дела улучшились. Отдельная Благодарность Ольге Шайкеевой.

Workers of this excellent organization helped me to understand my rights in USA, Arizona, and to deal with my difficult situation. They, like angels, arrived to my house when I was Abused by my husband. I didn't know what to do. They found for me and my child temporary house. They helped us to fined good babysitter, school, work for me. They brought me emergency food and kitchen appliances. Then, they helped me with courts and my citizenship. I never even dreamed about such help! Thanks!

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.

SHIELD was one of the best helping organizations for my family in the difficult time. My children were unrolled into very good and prospective schools, I was helped with my resume. SHIELD volunteers helped me with the family benefits and our courts. I am very happy to be able to say: "Thank you!" one more time to this wonderful, professional and kind people.

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.

I had many meetings and calls with Olga and she was very helpfull for me and my family with the whole process. Every time I had a question or needed some advise Olga was always there. Me and my family would like to thank her and everyone else at Shield and recomend them to anyone who needs some great people for help.

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.

I have not used SHEILD personally, but they were able to help someone I know, and I was blown away by all that they did for her. I would like to thank them. Their work is important, and it helps those who need it most. Maybe together we can stop domestic violence from victimizing so many of our innocents.

I am so happy to write a review supporting SHIELD. These people were there for me a time when I had no one, and I needed them the most. They don’t just touch lives, they save them. I am proud to be able to give something back to a group who gave me so much.

My experience with SHIELD Foundation has truly been life changing! I was new to the country and was being abused by my husband. I did not know the laws and had no friends or family to seek advice or help from. Members of SHIELD showed me how NOT to be afraid, by providing the knowledge and support. They explained the necessary steps I had to undertake to protect myself and to start building my life in the United States. SHIELD members, Olga in particular, not only resolved the issue with my husband but educated and personally helped me with basics of living in this foreign country such as opening a bank account, writing a check, and establishing credit accounts. I cannot thank SHIELD and Olga enough for everything they have done for me and other women in the community.

I am blown away by this organization. They provide immediate assistance to domestic violence victims and stay a support throughout the entire process to try to make sure these people are safe. I would strongly encourage anyone to find out more about them, and find a way to get involved. We need this.

Dear unknown, Thank you for your review, but I need to verify if you truly was volunteering for SHIELD in 2012? If yes: what level of volunteer you were, and exactly how you was helping SHIELD to perform our services?

We would like to express our enormous gratitude to the Shield foundation and especially Olga who offered us a big hand at a difficult moment! I was expecting my second child , my husband was studying and working part time to support our stay. Thanks to Olga's qualified assistance I could have a safe delivery and get good medical service at that time back in 2004. I am sure she is the person born to help. Millions of thanks any hugs from the whole Musatov family! Good luck in the great job Shield does !

SHEILD provides immediate support, intervention, and assistance for victims of domestic violence, and who are in otherwise desperate situations. They will respond at once and help you through every step of the way. I can’t think of a worthier cause to place my support. Thank you for your efforts, please keep it going!

Thank you, our Friend! SHIELD Foundation is really unique organization, because it can provide high quality emergency intervention services. There is no other organization in Arizona doing it. We are very thankful to our super-volunteers, who will do whatever possible to help victims not only escape from Domestic Violence and prevent more damage to them and to their kids, but to understand their situation, obtain their independents and never to become a victim in the future. Sincerely yours, Olga C. for SHIELD Administration.

There is nothing worse than feeling alone and helpless, and SHIELD is working to make sure no one ever has to feel that way ever. They are committed to responding immediately and provide services to so many kinds of victims through every step of their recovery process. I don’t know where we would be without them.

When I heard about SHEILD, I knew I wanted to donate and get involved. This is an organization that helps people when they really need it the most, and are dedicated to seeing it through to the end. This is such a comfort to those in dangerous situations, who have been victimized and are unsure what to do next. Their services are invaluable.
