About

The Learning Platform

This new website will use evidence-based approaches to educate and inform visitors how to recognize if a crime has occurred, how to report crimes and abuse, where to obtain community victims services/referrals for individuals with disabilities, how to create a safety plan, how to engage the criminal justice system, and tools for emotional recovery in the aftermath of an assault.

Also, we aim to improve the accessibility of our existing GET SAFE curricula so that we can better train, inform, and educate victims of crimes with disabilities by making our training available to a wider audience.

  • “I was playing in my neighborhood and one day a friendly man who lived on the same block invited me into his house to play video games. A lot of my friends would take this man up on his offer, but something inside me told me, “No.” I remembered my GET SAFE class and that I should only play with the people my parents said are OK and to trust the feeling in my stomach.”

  • “Project GET SAFE self-defense classes, probably second only to my faith in God, have helped me to deal with the fear and helplessness of rape. Thanks to Project GET SAFE, I am now living a functional life and I have learned that while I will never change other people, I can change how they affect me.”
