Here are some comments from recent SAFE clients. 
If you need us, we're here for you 24-7 at 838-SAFE (336-838-7233). 
  •   “Thank you so much.  You’ll never know how much you all have helped me! God Bless!”  
  • “The staff has been great and helped me every step of the way. I love them all. SAFE is a wonderful place to learn how to be reliant on one’s self and have self worth and realize there is life after abuse.”
  • “The staff made us feel like family. They really care about you and your needs. It’s not just their job. We’re real people (to them), not just a number.”
  • “I honestly, at this moment, cannot find the words to express my appreciation and gratitude for the support I have received during my stay. These ladies have ‘tough love’ and discernment, something missing and needed in my life. Thank you so very much!”
  • “I felt there was a great open-door policy and the staff was very helpful. SAFE has taught me that I don’t need to stay in an abusive relationship. (SAFE is) a great place to come to get out of an abusive situation.”
  • “It was wonderful and I knew that I was truly safe. I got help from legal issues and the other women comforted me about the issues I had. For the help I received here at the shelter and SAFE, I’m confident I can move on from my abusive relationship and live a happier life. My child was very well received, he loved all the attention he got.”
  • “It was like a home, not a shelter. The staff was extremely supportive, kind and understanding. They made me comfortable and at ease. The shelter is a good transition place to gather your thoughts and get positive feedback.”
  • “SAFE does help very much. I’m starting to feel more independent.”
  • “Thank you for your love and kindness. SAFE is a good place for women to go.”
