Dr.Allison Jackson was very concerned about my baby, she made sure we made it home safely and she called personally to see how my baby was doing, her work and effort was very considerate and she showed very much concern about my baby, thank you a million, Dr.Jackson

I would recommend this organization to a friend or colleague to make them aware of the trauma, abuse and neglect that the children/ adolescents in this world suffer from the hands of others; and to make them more aware of organizations such as Safe Shores.
