“Having known the Sudberry family for many years and watching Kaity grow from a little girl into a beautiful young woman, the tragedy that took Kaity from us started my journey as a Kaity’s Way volunteer. I have such a great passion to ensure that other teens and their families don’t go through this type of tragedy. My love for the Sudberry’s has sparked my passion for Kaity’s Way and Kaity’s Law.”
“The reason I volunteer for Kaity’s Way is because want to help educate young people on the signs of an abusive relationship. Coming from a broken home myself and marrying an abuser I feel like I can relate to those needing help. When I first heard about Kaity Sudberry’s story several years ago I knew then that this is something I wanted to do.
Most people don’t realize that it’s not all about young teens either who need help. I was in 30’s before I got help and come across so many adults that were being abused.
I know that through this organization Bobbi and all the volunteers have helped so many people and I know that they are grateful for her and Kaitys Law that she fought so hard to get.”
“I first heard of Kaity’s Way when the president and co-founder, Bobbi Sudberry, visited my school. I was honestly grateful that this amazing woman would be so gracious to bring this message to us. Not many people visit our town for our “reputation” or the fact that it is so small. But when Mrs. Sudberry showed up and talked to us about Kaity, it was moving. However, Mrs. Sudberry wasn’t only trying to tell us about Kaity, she was trying to educate us so that we knew our rights and who can help us. She cares, so that inspired me to care.”
“My name is Lauren K. I have volunteered for Kaitys way since the beginning. Kaity was a friend of mine, sister to me, and want to spread the word on her story, on dating violence, to help others. I want to help people with knowledge my family had to learn through life experience, and make it known that people need to live in a healthy relationship no matter how old you are or what type of relationship you want to be in.”
I enjoyed working at Kaity’s Way as an intern. The working schedule was flexible and I felt part of Kaity’s family. I was a part of presentations, workshops and resource tables in high schools, colleges and universities. I learned to identify red flags in unhealthy relationships, and that it is more common than most people think. Most teenagers I met did not know that being in a relationship comes with certain responsibilities. Respect, tolerance and accepting the other person for who they are and what they believe in is an important part of maintaining a healthy relationship. But, under the law, teenagers are protected from abusive and controlling partners. I would highly recommend Kaity’s Way to my fellow classmates who are looking for a place to complete their internship. I guarantee you will feel like you are contributing to society and even saving lives.
“I was a student attending ASU when an opportunity opened up to intern in a organization. I chose Kaity’s Way. Kaity’s Way is a great non-profit organization. It helped me with my personal life and work. Also I have two teenage girls and Kaity’s Way helped me to understand that parents should never blame their children when they make a bad choice. Parents have to be friends but not to forget they are the parent. While I was interning at Kaity’s Way I had an opportunity to meet people from other organizations such as the FBI. Working with Kaity’s Way helped me educate women giving them options under the law. Hopefully educating one victim will create a chain among others who will be aware of their options in the real world.”
“First off I enjoyed my internship with Kaity’s Way. I learned a lot, that trust in strangers can be the key to helping people. Opening your heart to listening can open the other heart to seek out help. It’s a very quiet problem.. I did tables and helped with speaking presentations. I would not have traded it for anything. Thanks for everything.”
