What people are saying
"Safe Communities provided a high quality, cost effective training to caseworkers who investigate sexual abuse. Their knowledge and detailed information provided a working platform of knowledge on victimization, child on child sexual abuse and perpetrators of abuse. Even seasoned workers walked away with new insight."
Robin M. Boyer, MSW / Director of Intake Services / Lancaster County Children and Youth
"It has been a pleasure to have worked with Safe Places as the Emerald Foundation developed a comprehensive ‘youth safety’ policy. They provided thorough, insightful help and guidance as we ‘walked through’ the policy work. That all-inclusive assistance included a walk-through of the building to note ‘hot spots’, or areas that needed to be addressed. Safe Places is a top-notch resource that can really make a vital, positive difference for any organization working with young people."
Bob Houghton / Education Director / The Emerald Community Campus
"Safe Places healing groups are so beneficial because people truly understand what you went through because they experienced something similar. I genuinely felt supported by the others in the group. I learned a lot of new strategies for self-care and released years of built up trauma. I highly recommend the group!"

"I'm excited to invite Lizz to come back to my classroom to share more of her lessons with my students. The kids were very open to talking with her, probably because she is so personable and relatable. This is valuable content and I'm looking for anywhere in my curriculum where it will make sense to include it!"

"The time and reasonable cost is well worth investment to do all that we can to protect our children and youth. The support during and after completing Safe Church core curriculum is more than we expected or could have even hoped for!"
