Purple Ribbon Campaign

Safe Nest invites you to participate in our Purple Ribbon Campaign, starting October 3, 2016 and running until the end of the month. We are hoping to engage the greater Las Vegas community in getting involved in raising awareness to end domestic violence. Community partners that would like to participate are going to be given a packet with information designed to raise awareness and allow the business to show support for survivors of domestic violence. Additionally, we will be making sponsored social media posts that businesses can post on their official social media pages.

Cindy's Spirit

Cindy’s Spirit is a theatrical production of the classic tale Cinderella, with a twist. Set in the 21st century, Cindy’s Spirit delightfully depicts everyday characters who are confronted with their fears, personal struggles, strongholds, family issues and unleashed dreams. In an entertaining and comical manner, Cindy’s Spirit chronicles tales of domestic violence, bullying, sibling rivalry, and parental abandonment and has a life changing effect on those who share the stage, as well as a powerful impact upon the audience. This comedy/drama will, with a sense of freshness, uplift everyone.
