Get Ready. Get Safe. Save the Children

When a disaster happens, what happens to the children?

Our Get Ready Get Safe initiative is dedicated to helping communities prepare for worst-case scenarios, generating emergency plans for our most vulnerable victims, making sure supplies are in place before disasters happen, and training those who are most responsible for children’s safety.

And when disasters do occur, we’re there. Creating a safe haven for children to work through their emotions. Providing the coping skills to help reduce the effects of disasters on young minds. Because we want our kids to just be kids, no matter what happens.
