Stop Abuse for Everyone (SAFE)

Stop Abuse for Everyone (SAFE)

Stop Abuse For Everyone (SAFE) provides unique services for domestic violence victims. We help those who typically fall between the cracks of domestic violence services and few services are available: straight men, GLBT victims, teens, and the elderly. We promote that there should be services for ALL victims and accountability for all perpetrators.

Our approach is to view domestic violence as a human issue. It doesn’t matter what type of person you are, if you’re in an abusive relationship, it is the type of experience you’re having that is important!

We believe that the services you receive should be based on what you need…rather than who you are. That is the goal we work towards. Individuals experience problems based on the simple fact that they are men or women, gay or straight, old or young. SAFE addresses their individual concerns, and fills in the gaps in domestic violence services where others don’t.

Suicide.Org

suicideorgSuicide.org explains that suicide is never the answer, but getting help IS the answer.

Ran by Kevin Caruso, Suicide.org’s mission is to prevent suicides, support suicide survivors, and educate the public about suicide.

Suicide.org conducts extensive work online and offline to further its mission of suicide prevention, awareness, and support.  We also run an online suicide survivors’ forum, which provides a safe place for suicide survivors to receive help.

And we work to remember and honor the angels who die by suicide in as many ways as we can, including online memorials.

And we work to spread awareness about suicide in as many ways as possible.

Offline, we give presentations about suicide, run suicide awareness campaigns, help schools establish effective suicide prevention and anti-bullying strategies, visit and call suicide survivors, and assist suicidal individuals.

Kristin Brooks Hope Center

kristen brooksOn April 7, 1998, Kristin Brooks committed suicide.  It was a horrible tragedy for those who knew and loved her.  What could be done, wondered her husband Reese Butler, to help those who were still alive and hurting like Kristin was that horrible April day?

The 1-800-SUICIDE phone number is just one of the many causes that were created because of Reese’s and the Center’s help and Kristin’s tragic end.  There is also an online crisis chat, college campus awareness events of suicide and its’ effects on not just the person committing the acts but their family and friends; and also music therapies.  They are also located on Facebook, MySpace and Twitter.

You can volunteer to help, or you can call to get help.  Either way, it’s a win-win situation.
