My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Promise to Protect Inc, Asheville, NC, USA
I was abused as a child. I had no help, no one to believe me. I was taken out of the home while the abuser remained. Ultimately he got off free while I had to live with the shame. He went on to abuse again, and unbelievably got off AGAIN. I wish an organization like PROTECT had been available at that time.
I cannot imagine a more relevant organization. The volunteers at Protect lobby, change laws, and continue to make ground breaking strides for the only cause that should matter, the kids. Alicia's Law, Incest exception abolishment, bills and laws to increase tracking abusers, awareness, safety. They even recently tackled bullying (see the book HEART TRANSPLANT) Join PROTECT, its the LEAST you can do.
It is for children, for real.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
See my above comments. I have experienced the peace of mind that other kids won't have to go through what I did and I know I have a family stronger than my family of origin to fight with me.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
not do a thing...unless I could give them more money or time. I would like to see more lobbying from voices that have more ability to be heard..like the actors Alison Arngrim and Brian Keith have done. I don't understand why ANYONE wouldn't support this cause.
