In this season of giving thanks, Someplace Safe would like to thank YOU, our generous supporters, for helping to create safer families and safer communities for all:
“I felt comfortable…I felt I was listened to and validated.”
“…Having someone to talk to about my situation without being judged.”
“The feeling that someone was there that understood what I was going through without judgment”
