SAF provides a number of services for students, people of faith and community members. To best use our limited resources we prioritize these services for colleges and universities in the Carolinas and for faith groups in NC where we have built long-term relationships and can see impact over time. If you fit in one of these target groups, please fill out our speaker request form below so that we can determine if we can do a presentation/ workshop or participate as a panelist for your event. If you do not fit this criteria, please check our list of referrals and resources to lead a workshop of your own.
In order to cover the costs of these services, we request that those benefiting make a tax-deductible contribution to SAF.
