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.

The S H I E L D Foundation, provides very important services for people in their most vulnerable situations. Having some place to go for shelter, receive an advise on what to do now, get encouragement and basic hope that eventually this situation can be solved is very important especially for woman who is new to the country, and might not have any one to go or ask for help or any resources to support herself and her children. The S H I E L D Foundation provides all their services free of charge, and what is very important for Russian speaking victims on their own language. I am certainly hope that this organization continues their services for years to come in their mission of helping people in their life crisis situations. Thank you.

I first met the members of S H I E L D Foundation when I arrived in Arizona in 2008. The purpose of S H I E L D Foundation is to help and educate people through community building. Its work is service oriented. It has always been ready to help me in clarifying or answering a question or through notarizing a document. Their service doesn't require making appointments or paying fees, it's efficient and free.

The member of this organization took a very active part in putting together International Charity event “New Year Of Kindness” that took place in Scottsdale in January 2012, benefiting children’s home. The knowledge of law, psychology , experience of dealing with legal issues, desire to share the experience and desire to help is an outstanding example of non-profit organization worker performing at a highest level to benefit the community and be a real support for volunteers who often lack these qualities. Thank you so much for your help !

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!
