IN THE MEDIA
Executive Director & Founder, Stuart Haskin, had the opportunity to share his heart for Inland Regional Center staff and clients, as well as his thoughts on safety preparedness education with KCAL 9. GET SAFE® stands ready to support clients, families, staff, and anyone else in the community who has been affected by any tragedy.
WHAT'S GOING ON?
OUR MOVEMENT FOR #CHANGE
At GET SAFE®, we passionately strive to empower the lives of people using our concept of “Changing Mindsets, Changing Outcomes”.
With highly interactive and engaging violence prevention, crisis intervention and recovery programs, we enable a skillset that promotes the best practice when confronted with the onset of anger, indifference, and conflict.
GET SAFE® has positively impacted the lives of more than 500,000 people of all ages and abilities since its inception 35 years ago. Through its violence prevention, safety education and advocacy programs, GET SAFE® remains committed to impacting the lives of persons of divergent backgrounds; protecting the well-being of students; and building safer, more inclusive communities.
In 1984, Founder and CEO Stuart Haskin branched off to explore initiating a comprehensive training that would target individuals, families, and communities on a grander scale. Choice Personal Safety was the first agency to emerge from this idea, specializing in survivor empowerment and unique self-defense recovery. Three years later, after being certified by the state of California as a Crisis Intervention and Sexual Assault Counseling agency, Choice Personal Safety transformed into the now titled GET SAFE®.
Since 1990, GET SAFE® has expanded to encompass a variety of programs to meet specific needs for at-risk communities, including children's safety programs for anti-bullying, workplace safety and healthy relationship programs for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities, and survivor programs tailored to provide trauma care, self-defense safety modules, and psychoeducational classes on sexual assault and rape. GET SAFE® also provides law enforcement trainings to more safely identify and interact with persons with developmental disabilities, mental illness, and substance abuse.
OUR CULTURE OF #CHANGE
GET SAFE® is an ever expanding agency, scaling to fit the demand of trainings for law enforcement, workplace professionals, and at-risk individuals. We are an international team, with members stationed all over the country, as well as abroad. We recognize with growth, comes greater responsibility. We believe success is in the details, and stand firm on cultivating a culture that welcomes diversity, empathy, and hope. This is how we have developed a professional, yet connected team devoted to changing our community for the better.
