When things were not going well in my family, Safe Places was always helpful to give me the guidance I needed. I cannot even number the many times they were present with us while we were going through the roughest spots in our lives.

My children were sexually, physically and emotionally abused their entire lives. Each paid t=for it in a different way. I know know Safe Places and everything they do and I am certain our lives would have been different if there had been a Safe Places.

Safe places is an organization that is definitely there for the community. The organization has helped countless young ladies in developing much needed self-esteem transformations. I have sponsored Safe Places Cinderella Ball and look forward to sponsoring in the future.

Our homes are supposed to be our safe place but in this world it often does not work out that way. Thanks to Safe Places people seeking refuge can find a haven of safety, love and help. Little Rock has a treasure in Safe Places. It should be supported and protected. If only every community had a Safe Places.

One of my co-workers currently has a daughter being counseled and treated at this facility. She has told me numerous times what a blessing Safe Places has been for her daughter and their entire family. I didn't know anything about this place until she informed me it existed!!

I would like to personally say thank you,” Safe Places”, for allowing our youngest daughter to go through your Princess Program last year. I first read about your program through an email I received and at that point I knew it was something she needed to participate in. I called Ms. Angela and from that initial contact, I knew this program would have a positive impact on my daughter’s life just from the sincerity Ms. Angela had for the program, itself. As a Mom, I knew it would be a great opportunity for my daughter because of the leadership skills she could develop and also the community service she would be involved in. My daughter DID NOT want to be a part of the program....at all!! But after the first day, she could not wait to come back. You see, my daughter has been bullied since 6th grade and as parents you hurt for them. Safe Places was an answer to prayer because she got a chance to share her experiences and be around other young ladies who also had similar experiences. She also learned that there are so many forms of bullying. She also got the opportunity to be a part of teaching other young people how to handle situations, similar to her experience. I can not say enough about how wonderful Ms. Angela, Ms. Kathy and the entire staff made her experience in the Princess program one she will never forget. She is now such an advocate that every opportunity she gets to share what she experienced at Safe Places, she does. She also recruits, constantly; potential participates for the Princess program. She has a had a wonderful 8th grade year but not 100% bully free but now she is able to cope with it so much better and help other girls not suffer like she did. The staff at Safe Places were always available to answer not only the young ladies questions but never missed opportunities to keep the parents informed about what was going on. I sincerely appreciate this program for not only existing in this community but for all the hard work that Ms. Kathy, Ms. Angela and all the staff, do to help make things better for so many women and children. We thank God for allowing us to experience some of what Safe Places offers to so many others…a place of comfort and peace. Thank You
