Welcome to Safe and Sound, your source for information, resources, and ideas for improving safety in your school community. We are a non-profit organization, dedicated to empowering community members to learn how they can join hands, hearts, and minds to make schools safer.
Founded by Alissa Parker and Michele Gay, mothers who lost their precious daughters at Sandy Hook Elementary School, we aim to help others prevent tragedy in their own school community.
