Program Feedback

“The MBF Child Safety Matters program is impressive. This important information is well formulated and well presented, developmentally appropriate, and based on good understanding of literature.” – David Finkelhor, Ph.D.,Director, Crimes Against Children Research Center


“The MBF Teen Safety Matters curriculum hosts an in-depth approach to important social and safety concerns relevant to youth. The program content is age-appropriate with engaging activities, jargon, and realistic situations to positively promote a relatable and impacting learning experience…Teen Safety Matters is an educational benefit to all parties involved – students, parents, facilitators, and schools.” – Sharon W. Cooper, MD, FAAP Consultant, National Center for Missing & Exploited Children


“I heard about the program through my son. He came home…and showed me the safety rules. I cannot thank the Foundation enough; to have other people who are also concerned about my child’s safety and the safety of other kids is wonderful. I especially like the program’s focus on the prevention side.” – Roberta Targino, M.S., Parent and Mental Health Counselor


“As a school counselor, we’re hands on and kids report a lot of information to us — MBF Child Safety Matters makes my job easier. The lessons are scripted and everything is written out for us. It covers some of the criteria I have to meet as a school counselor…” – Beth Dudjack, School Counselor/Facilitator


“I am writing to share with you the response I received to offering your prevention lessons to students at my school. My intention was to present the lessons to at least our fourth and fifth graders, but my decision changed as we neared the end of our school year. We had a string of disclosures that resulted in four students being removed from their homes in a very short time. I made the decision at that point to present your lessons to every classroom (K-5) at our school. I wanted to thank you for providing the framework I was able to use to initiate this difficult topic with our students. I feel such gratitude for your organization and how, through you, we are able to support and empower children.” – School Counselor/Facilitator


“There’s not a child in the world who can’t benefit from this program. There are so many instances where we see children who have been damaged and hurt. Things happened to them and we think, if they’d only had this program, if they’d only had the benefit of this education, that might not have happened to them. If we can prevent that from happening to a single child, then it’s worth all the effort we have put forth.” – Edward Burr, MBF Founder/Chairman of the Board
