A great help to the community. Helped me live a better life.
I recently had a similar situation happen to my niece and I wanted to help get the word out about the importance of knowing the signs and what to do for these teens. I decided to volunteer and I have been met with such acceptance. Getting to know every one involved and seeing the success of reaching out to teens is just amazing. Thanks for helping me help you.
This is a MUCH NEEDED organization and is intended to help save lives. Domestic violence is rampant in our society, you hear about it almost everyday on the local news. It happens in our schools, in our homes, and in our neighborhoods. You do not have to look far to see a battered adult or a battered child. Due to a terrible, unthinkable tragedy, one awesome mother, Bobbi Sudberry, gathered all the anger and grief she had inside and decided to fight back! She is fighting back by educating women and children everywhere on what domestic violence is, what the early warning signs are, how to break the cycle of violence and leave before it is too late. As a volunteer with Kaity's Way, we participate in schools, community events, conferences, anywhere we can reach the most vulnerable and share Kaity's story. Bobbi presents a history of Kaity's life, how beautiful and successful she was, how much she was loved, and how she was murdered right after graduating from high school. We always have brochures and printed material available for all. The goal is to educate everyone about the early warning signs, how they can escape the relationship safely, where they can go, and where they can seek help. We are here for anyone in need.
I recently hd the privilege to volunteer with Kaity's Way. The focus of this great group of people from all walks of life is amazing. They truly honor Kaity in their efforts to educate the public about teen dating violence and teach ways to build healthy relationships. Kaity’s Way has grown from a statewide into a nationwide program over their short four-year existence and they couldn't have done it without their volunteers and contributors! Their great energy, dedication, and examples of PEACE in their everyday lives is truly inspiring.
I watched Kaity's Way make great inroads in rural communities in Arizona through the presentation given by Bobbi Sudberry, Kaity's mom. Teens, their parents, teachers, supporters and friends give feedback after each presentation that they have a better understanding of teen dating violence and are better equiped to be safe and build healthy dating relationships.
Review from Guidestar
Kaitys Way is an excellent movement that has started here locally in Arizona. Its mission is something hold power and meaning to many that have been silenced. Unfortunately many that have had to deal with any type of family violence-- many of their stories are unheard either because they are too scared, arent aware that there is help. And the times where when we do here about this violence, its too late becasue they are dead. Kaitys Way is a start of a positive movement that should celebrated and recongized. Its work is great! Having people like them is a way for the community to help those who have been silenced.
Kaity's Way is a very important nonprofit organization that should be recognized as such. Kaity's story was a heart breaking story but it can help other girls in the future. This story gave examples of what signs to look for in an abusive relationship. I think this organization is doing a fantastic job raising awareness about these type situations that are very common and happen daily when it comes to dating violence.
Although this story was very sad and unfortunate, I think this organization does a phenomenal job raising awareness for situations that are becoming more and more common it seems. This story can be used as a model to many females who do not understand the actual possibility of partner violence, and will hopefully change or even save the lives of many individuals.
I think the point made by the awfully story is a great one and was and still is needed. The law that was put into place is a great one and will be used in future cases. I am informed and will inform others of this law.
I really liked the personal story that was shared to the public. Because it made women more aware of assault, and I feel as though many women can relate to what happened to Kaity. Even though Kaity's situation was a very tragic one many women can learn from her story and I believe her family as well as herself saved many women's lives because of the awareness campaign that they have established.
Kaitys way presentaion was a real in depth example of what dating violence can escalate to regardless of the age. Unfortunately the life of young girl was taken in order for people to realize how severe this issue can be. Kaitys Way presentation was very inspiring, really opens your eyes to relationship violence. Personally this is a tragedy that should have been averted and is very upsetting another innocent person is gone in order to create a law or policy. Kaitys Way presentation was one of the most inspiring presentations I have ever witnessed.
