Everyone at Project Safe would like to extend a huge thank you to WSSO and all of the community members who came out to highlight and elevate the voices of survivors of sexual and domestic violence at Take Back the Night on April 5th. Solidarity is key 💜Since the 1960’s, Take Back the Night has empowered and supported survivors of sexual assault, helped those in pain and asserted that it is wrong for people to live in fear for their safety at night and any time of the day. Our rallies, marches, candlelight vigils, and speak-outs are the means by which we show our support and take a stand.
All donations go directly towards The Cottage and Project Safe to help them carry out their mission of supporting survivors of sexual assault and domestic violence. ... See MoreSee Less

Adam is our Donations Manager, and an integral part of the store’s ability to run smoothly. 6 years ago, after a motorcycle accident, Adam came to us as a CSW. After his 40 hours were completed, he says he called and asked if he could continue volunteering at the store. Adam volunteered almost every day for over half a decade, and was promoted to Donations Manager just last year. You can see behind him the dozens of posters which brighten the back of the store - Adam has put almost every single one up. When I asked him what his responsibilities entail specifically, he said “I just do whatever is needed.” Anyone who knows Adam knows that is entirely true. He knows everything there is to know about the store. When he’s not here, which is rare, he’s at home, where he loves to work outside. He also owns and rides a Harley, and enjoys finding charity rides to drive for a cause. The last ride he participated in had over 1000 cyclists involved, and stretched a full 17 miles in motion. The store truly could not be the same without Adam’s dedication, and we are so grateful! ... See MoreSee Less
