Founded by parents who lost children at Sandy Hook, we are a national non-profit school safety resource center, providing research-based tools and services for crisis prevention, response, and recovery, to help protect every school and every student, every day.
Safe and Sound offers a network of survivors and safety professionals to provide support to your community during the recovery process. Support ranges from on-site multi-dimensional reinforcement to remote phone or video-based guidance. Reach out and connect with us.
