New Movies Created for 
Play It Safe!TM  


This school year thousands of area students, Pre-K through high school, will learn about personal safety through a Play It Safe!™ presen-tation. The elementary grade level movies are new this year and have been created exclusively for this program.  These movies speak to children at their age of maturity to reduce their risk of abuse, and give them the tools to tell someone about the abuse. There is a different movie and script per grade. Middle and high school student presentations are topics relevant for teens. The Women's Center's child abuse prevention program is provided free throughout Tarrant County.

Volunteers Make A Difference

Betsy was the victim of a horrific sexual assault in her home.  The volunteer who met her at the hospital provided the comfort she needed and let her know she's not alone.  With the volunteer's first words "I'm here for you", Betsy began her recovery and learned to get her life back. Betsy later became a victim advocate herself to give a voice to survivors and help them begin to healRead Betsy's story here.
