As a civic-minded business, you can partner with us to create a community that takes action to protect our kids. Here are three simple ways to get involved.
1. Lunch & Learn

Lunch & Learn is an initiative to educate our community about the impact of abuse on children, families and society. Lunch & Learn participants choose from a variety of educational topics related to child and community safety, then schedule a date for Safe & Sound staff to deliver a presentation at a location of their choice. Whether you’re interested in bringing us to your workplace, group, or association, Lunch & Learns can help you join a movement of people and organizations taking a stand for kids.

2. Volunteer

Rally a team of your colleagues to participate in a hands-on community service project at our offices or yours. We have several done-in-a-day projects that are suitable for teams of 5 – 25 volunteers, from serving dinners, assembling care packages, and distributing holiday gifts. Safe & Sound staff will provide personalized consulting to tailor our volunteer opportunities to meet your company’s interests, schedule, and budget.

3. Donate

Corporate Philanthropy is critical to addressing complex societal problems like child abuse. Safe & Sound is fortunate to have generous support from many local businesses by way of grants; dollars for doers and matching gifts programs; event sponsorships; employee-led fundraisers; donated products or services; and more. There are so many ways your company can donate to Safe & Sound — contact your HR department to see what social impact programs you and your colleagues can participate in.

Lunch & Learn

Use your lunch break for good! Invite Safe & Sound staff to inform and educate the employees at your company.

Child abuse is a pervasive, often overlooked, ill in our community. While our city faces many social challenges, including poverty, homelessness, crime, and addiction, child abuse is often the hidden, contributing factor that directly impacts all of us. Eradicating child abuse from society will take effort from all of us, and you can help.

Lunch & Learns are an opportunity for civic-minded companies to be part of the growing movement of people and organizations taking a stand for kids.

Setup A Lunch & Learn: Choose from a variety of educational topics related to child abuse then schedule a date for Safe & Sound staff to deliver a presentation. Each Lunch & Learn is about one hour long and takes place at a location of your choosing. The ability to project slides is needed and employees are encouraged to bring their own lunch.

Child Abuse 101

Intended for general audiences
Learn how to define child abuse, its prevalence in the Bay Area, and its pervasive effects on children, communities, and society — as well as how to identify and respond to signs of child abuse.

Protect Our Children

Intended for parents and caregivers
Learn how to recognize the warning signs of abuse in children and how to empower them to protect themselves and to navigate out of unsafe situations.

The Impact of Violence on Children

Intended for general audiences
Witnessing violence, either within the home or within the community at large, is harmful to children and their developing brains. Learn how domestic and community violence can permanently alter the life path of a child and could lead to a cycle of violence within a home, a neighborhood or city.

The Economic Cost of Child Abuse

Intended for general audiences
$301.6 Million. This is the economic cost of just one year’s worth of child abuse victims in San Francisco. The same amount of money could send nearly 3,000 kids to college. Learn how Safe & Sound partnered with U.C. Berkeley’s Haas School of Business to quantify this cost, and what risk factors make families in San Francisco particularly vulnerable.
