Strength in my Personal Safety Net means strength in me.

Personal Safety Nets

Each of us is surrounded by people we can count on,

and people who can count on us - whether we know it or not.

Personal Safety Nets is a pragmatic way of preparing for the surprises in 

life by building a plan to increase resourcefulness and resilience

for you and those you care about.
