As we celebrate 10 years of Planet SAFE, we look to clients to see the impact that the work has. One client was kind enough to share her experience with us.

Navigating through the chaotic process of a painful divorce was possible with the support of
Time and time again and in so many ways Planet SAFE and all the wonderful staff has helped
my family. The moment you walk in the staff greets you with a pleasant and welcoming smile
making you feel like you are someone that matters. The staff is never too busy or uninterested to
take a few minutes and ask my kids how everything is going and giving them compliments.
After the divorce, my kids were left with an unconscious feeling of being different or that
something was wrong with them as they compare with their peers around. Planet SAFE does an
amazing job when approaching my kids! They do it in a caring supporting way and with an air of
inclusivity – making them feel “normal”.
Every holiday is special and beautiful at Planet SAFE! The kids receive amazing and much needed Christmas presents! A beautifully decorated festive planet SAFE building, arts and crafts combined with a warm atmosphere gives the kids an awesome holiday season!

Planet SAFE has being truly a blessing for me, it made the visitations and exchanges so much
easier and convenient. Since Planet SAFE is the mediator, I can stay safe not only physically but

It’s very comforting having a place that their mission is to alleviate the struggles of

Thank you so much.
