Safe Nest has been an invaluable asset to Las Vegas’ community. As the city has grown, the need for assistance for victims of domestic violence has grown with it. County and state resources that offer aid are limited and in some cases, non-existent. Safe Nest is unique in the community as it offers a comprehensive range of counseling services as well as a much-needed shelter where victims can begin to plan the next steps of their lives in a safe and supportive environment. These services proved invaluable for a friend who felt she had few options while living with family members who had become emotionally destructive and increasingly, physically violent.

The staff at Safe Nest work hard everyday to provide families that have experienced domestic violence with a safe place to stay during one of the most traumatic times of their lives. They provide a warm bed, healthy food, resources to help them reclaim their lives, and a shoulder to lean on when times are difficult. They are there for the clients 365 days a year.

Safe Nest has been in our community for decades helping those who seek help. I've had the pleasure of hearing some of the testimonials from women who had nowhere else to turn except for Safe Nest. Safe Nest has saved so many women from their abusers and offers a place for them and their children to stay while they get back on their feet. God bless Safe Nest, the employees and all who volunteer.

I knew of this organization growing up because my mother would donate items and money. As a little girl I didn't understand the importance or significance of Safe Nest in the community, but my mom did. As an adult, I now understand the importance and am grateful that Safe Nest has had the longevity it has. I personally know many (yes, more than one) women that Safe Nest has helped. I have also had the pleasure of attending a couple events to benefit Safe Nest and I must say that they have both been very classy and to the point.
In a perfect world there would be no need for Safe Nest but until that day comes I take comfort in knowing that this resource is available to my community!!!

Safe Nest is an amazing organization that helps victims of domestic violence. Being in the HR field I get quite a few employees who are unfortunately in this awful situation. We always refer them to Safe Nest to seek help or counseling in the hopes that they can get out of the situation they are in. Keep doing what you are doing! We need more organizations like this in the world.
